Environmental Science Class Reuses Old Campus Landmark

(COVINGTON, La.) — A brick-lined butterfly garden is being created near the Wolf Dome and new gym this week from the remnants of the old art room by the Environmental Science class as part of a grant-funded campus beautification project.

“We have almost completed all of our planting and are still working on the actual body of water (for the wetlands),” junior Patrick Napier said.

The bricks were recovered by then-sophomores August Latapie and Nick Ashton, Alumni and Development Director Al Nastasi and 1986 alumnus Keith Dufour, along with their sons on December 6, 2014. The building had been on campus since the 1940s and was dedicated as a senior memorial of the Class of 1953, but was torn down to make room for the new gym.
