We have come together to create the Sustainable Schoolyards exhibit and website with the assistance of Bay Tree Design, inc. who provided the eco-schoolyard conceptual framework and developed the design for this exhibit.

The demonstration display is part of the One Planet—Ours! exhibit, which can be viewed at the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C. from May 24–October 13, 2008.
