Columbia School Green Way

For the Columbia School Green way project we worked with the El Monte City School District to create a joint use school and community park.

The City of El Monte’s Columbia Elementary School campus features native plants and trees interlaced with a exercise trail, running track and sports field.

The Health Benefits of Urban Greening

Community Involvement

Amigos engaged local residents, teachers and students from the schools to design an exercise trail combining educational native habitat areas.

Project Team: Emerald Necklace Group | Amigos de los Rios with VCC Engineering, Multiple Youth Corps: California Conservation Corp, San Gabriel Conservation Corp, and Los Angeles Conservation Corp helped implement the greening project.
