The project involved:
- Visit with pupils to River Don to identify tree and shrub species that grow along its banks, to inform landscape design (Mary Bourne and Deveron Homes representative).
- Session with pupils drawing animal species that live in the river (Mary Bourne).
- Design scheme incorporating a local silver granite path in the shape of the River Don, sandblasted animals, granite boulders and planting of species identified by children (Mary Bourne/Ross Partnership Landscape Design).
- Visit by children to local stone works to see their drawings being sandblasted and to learn about the stone industry. (Mary Bourne and Deveron Homes representative).
