The nearly month-long Beaver Dam Jr./Sr. High School beautification project is complete. The once barren area between the school and the ballfield is now filled with colorful plants and trees which when mature will provide lots of shade for students, faculty and visitors to sit and enjoy the space.
The project is a combined effort with Mesquite Rotary, Kokopelli Landscaping and Star Nursery putting forth momentum, muscle and matter.
The project is funded by the Mesquite Rotary Club and their annual Mudd Volleyball games.
Kokopelli Landscaping completed all the ground work like digging, trenching and stabilizing the hillside. They also took care of the landscaping design.
Star Nursery, who was also glad to pitch in, donated over 160 plants in five gallon containers that were planted on the hillside and around the bell up to the parking lot. The plants will build strong root systems to help stop the erosion that had been a recurring problem on the once barren hill.
Visitors are encouraged to stop by and enjoy the scenery and the area.

The last project to complete the Beaver Dam Jr./Sr. High School beautification was the laying of the walkway from the parking lot to the steps leading to the ballfield.
