Nature Explore Classroom

NV5 designed an outdoor nature classroom for Círculo de la Hispanidad’s Evergreen Charter School in Hempstead, New York. The “classrooms” were created in two small areas within the parking lot of the schoolyard.

The design allows young students to learn about science by playing and working with natural materials in a hands-on fashion.

Sustainable features include porous paving, pervious surfaces, locally sourced native plants, and recycled materials.
