The rain garden project at Rogers High School, spearheaded Rogers students and directed by horticulture teacher Scott Dickison, will continue to gain momentum over the summer, Dickison said.
Phase one of Rogers Campus Goes Green included the four rain gardens recently installed on the high school's grounds. Dickison began designing the project in the summer of 2011 with the help of Save the Bay in response to issues like rain water runoff.
The project will also expand to include asphalt removal from areas on campus this fall.
Areas targeted for asphalt removal will be developed into lawns and gardens. The project will be funded by grants, donations and support from the school committee and City of Newport.
