YMCA of Greenville’s Caine Halter Family Y Outdoor Classroom and Riparian Corridor Restoration

YMCA of Greenville, SC, Greenville, SC

Giving people access to all parts of the river ecology opens their eyes to the value of the natural world and their role in preserving it. The updates to the riverside create an environmental education resource for the Y's programs as well as other community partners. A large stone council ring, multiple science stations, walking trails, under a tree-canopied area enhance this outdoor classroom space for the full community.

Counties Impacted:

  • Greenville County

​Thanks to the Duke Energy Water Resources Fund, YMCA of Greenville’s new riverside outdoor classroom and educational programs allow our community to engage with the Reedy River, furthering their understanding of the impact urbanization makes on it and what their roles can be to protect it.
