Boise-Eliot/Humboldt School Depave Work Party

September 22 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Join Depave and partners as we rip up pavement and make way for a soft play space and vegetated area at Boise-Eliot/Humboldt School.

“I’m excited about this project because when I asked (former) Principal Kevin Bacon what the school needed, he immediately replied a place for kids to play where they weren’t at risk of scraped knees. It’s also much better for the kids to look outside their classrooms and see greenery instead of asphalt. Studies say they’ll better retain what they’re being taught.” – Andrew Land, parent of a Boise-Eliot/Humboldt Elementary School second grader
