Brunswick High School

Site Design and Landscaping

Brunswick, Maine

Brunswick High School is located in a coastal watershed, and the innovative site design that keeps pollutants from reaching nearby clam flats also created an outdoor lab for environmental studies.

Students can see firsthand how man-made ponds and wetlands help filter and absorb pollutants. And a preserve of 10 acres of woods and five of blueberry fields offers opportunities for research in botany and biology.

Plantings in two interior courtyards are maintained by ecology club students.

An amphitheater is just outside the entrance to the performing arts center. Grass tiers that provide seating in good weather shield the theater entrance from prevailing winds in winter.
