Grymes School is partnering with Chesapeake Natural Heritage, Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisher­ies, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and PEC to design and secure public and private funding for a native meadow planting, approximately 13 acres in size, located on the edge of the Town of Orange.

 Developing the native meadow and integrating related outdoor learning oppor­tunities into the curriculum have been a long held goal for Grymes. The design entails planting part of a 9-acre parcel of land PEC transferred to Grymes in 2013. The design also calls for installing bluebird boxes and creating a hedge row with native trees and shrubs. Grymes and its partners anticipate implementing the native meadow project in late 2015 and early 2016.
