The money will be used to build a compost bin to help native plants grow on the site, which currently includes non-native species and weeds. The compost bin will provide a beneficial place where vegetative waste can be collected and turned into a valuable resource. In addition, funding will go toward the establishment of a study area for the replanting of native plants.
