Film Story:

When the abandoned Cheltenham High School burned down in 1995, a group of neighbors came together to preserve a legacy of learning on the vacated 11-acre lot by founding a community park.  Fifteen years later, those same neighbors continue to work together to restore and learn from High School Park’s native ecosystems.
