The Nativity School welcomed this school year with a brand new 100-yard artificial-turf field complete with a new drainage system. The field will be used for outdoor play and organized sports programs such as football, lacrosse, and soccer. The new drainage system consists of a series of layers designed to infiltrate surface water into the subsurface soils and eventually replenish the water table. The new field supports California drought goals by not only replenishing the water table, but also eliminating the need for further water usage. Additionally the new turf does not require fertilizers and pesticides for field maintenance. “It is our moral obligation to do all we can to protect our natural resources by using them efficiently,” said Principal Margaret Heveron. “This leadership carries over into the students’ attitudes,” he continued.
