High school, middle school and elementary school students in the Port Jefferson School District teamed up to build a new native species garden in front of the BOCES building on High Street in Port Jefferson.

The students, who are all members of their schools’ environmental clubs, worked throughout the day to prepare the garden bed in an environmentally friendly way and distribute mulch. The students plan to return in the spring to plant a multitude of native plant species.
