Envirotech, working with Myers Schmalenberger Inc., site landscape architects, and representatives of the Huron Clinton Metropolitan Authority, assisted in the design, development and implementation of an 80 acre metropolitan park which features restorations of the following ecosystems: prairie barrens, shortgrass prairie, tallgrass prairie, and a sedge-fen-lake complex. The diversity of ecosystems present within the park make it a unique and extraordinary educational platform. Envirotech collaborated with an educational committee in designing a master plan to be used by the park system to achieve educational goals set for the site. This master plan includes teacher-training sessions, research, activities and exhibits for the Environmental Education Center and activities for groups of elementary through college age students. The plan also addresses methods to generate community involvement and interest, both in the general public and the educational community. The goal is to use the site to teach about ecosystems and to give visitors an appreciation of the complexity of natural systems and the interrelationships between all aspects of nature, including the role of human beings.
