Organized around six teaching 
"pods," corresponding outdoor
courtyards lent themselves to the
representation of a cross section of
the habitats of Western Washington.
All the courtyards, from coastal grasses and salt-tolerant plants to the snow-hardy subalpine plants of the Cascades, are connected with a bioretention system that collects roof and surface runoff water to promote onsite infiltration, clean water, relieve urban stormwater piping and increase habitat for birds, small mammals and beneficial insects.  Other site work includes a substantial hardscape with stairs and sloped walks, parking area raingardens, ball fields and bus drop off.  With CDC.
