Westwood Elementary School Native Garden,
Tour Leaders: Jack and Judy Speer
(Following the Sheahan Yard Walk)
The Westwood Elementary School Garden was created in 2018 to enhance the school’s curriculum, and serve as an outdoor classroom. It is a community effort by school faculty, administration, and school staff with help from Judy and Jack Speer of Small Water Education, a grant from Illinois Clean Energy Foundation and plants were also provided by the WPPC.
This beautiful native garden provides a place to explore and observe interactions between butterflies, bees, and other insects.
Directions: From the Sheahans follow Moraine back to South Street, turn right and Westwood School will be on the right. Gardens are on the west side of the building.
