by Nathan Lee
Troup 124, Fremont, California
prepared an irrigation area, and constructed a sprinkler system for the
Greenhouse and butterfly garden at Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon. Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon
is located at 1999 Walnut Ave, Fremont, CA.
There are 3 ponds and one lake.
greenhouse serves as a nursery for smaller plants. The irrigation area
will allow trees to be planted and watered easily while the butterfly
garden will provide a natural habitat for the butterflies that are in
Fremont. The dimensions of the greenhouse are 149 inches by 129 inches.
The height of the greenhouse is 101 inches total. The distance from the
greenhouse to the nearby water supply is 67 feet. The irrigation area is
60 feet across from the greenhouse and approximately 90 feet by 40 feet.
The butterfly garden is at least 90 feet long.
