Project: Monrovia USD Campus Green Infrastructure Development Project

Description: The Monrovia Unified School District Campus Green Infrastructure Development Project will plant 160 native and drought-tolerant trees and 900 shrubs around the campus perimeters and at key locations throughout the school sites, helping to beautify, create ‘nearby nature’ and serve their nearly 1,000 students and the region’s families. It will remove water intensive grass species, in order to create a nature discovery - living laboratory on Campus Park with native, drought-tolerant urban forestry and water-saving Low-Impact Development elements students can enjoy. This grant funds only the planning components for the project. Monrovia’s schools are also joint use facilities with the City of Monrovia, so in addition to contributing to regional watershed and ecosystem health, the urban greening will create improved public green space.
