Habitat and Rain Garden Project at Ithan Elementary School (Dormant)

Editor’s note: This issue is currently dormant. We will continue monitoring the situation and may take up the issue in the future.


The Delaware Riverkeeper Network (DRN) is transforming an area at Radnor’s Ithan Elementary School that had been overwhelmed by invasives into an area dominated by native plants, and is creating three rain gardens that will slow, infiltrate, and clean stormwater runoff.  The effort will also result in healthy plant and animal habitat that can support environmental education at the school.
