About Granville Schools Land Lab
The Granville Land Lab is the largest outdoor K-12 educational facility in Ohio with 90 acres, soon to be 100 acres, of land. It functions as part of the Granville Schools Sustainability Project. The Land Lab was created to contribute to conservation by restoring the area in front of the Granville Intermediate School. It is an outdoor classroom for students of the Granville Exempted School District, Denison University, and surrounding school districts of Licking County. It provides unique, hands-on experiences to help students learn about life, physical, and environmental sciences, math, English, art, and music.
Each year, students in Jim Reding’s Environmental Science classes create and execute a Take Action project. These projects can focus on anything related to Environmental Science. Reding urges students to “take action” with their ideas and use what they learn to positively impact the environment in some way. Granville High School students created and expanded the Land Lab as part of their Take Action Projects, under the direction of their teacher: Jim Reding. The Land Lab is maintained by Granville High School students, Jim Reding, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, and “neighbors” of the Land Lab.
It is located in front of the Granville Intermediate School.
