The Baden Project
Fall 2016

Students have been involved as research assistants in this project, which is developing an ecological park in an underserved neighborhood of North St Louis. More than 90 houses have been removed from the neighborhood, due to floodwater backups into their basements. The research proposes a network of linked bio-retention ponds as part of a large-scale urban green infrastructure project that will provide clean water, enhanced habitat, community employment, and public health opportunities, among other benefits.
