About this site

King students are the stewards of this portion of Deering Oaks Park. Since 2016, King students have dedicated their time and focused their learning towards helping to restore the park to a native Maine ecosystem. Through the planting and maintenance of native species, King students are creating an ecosystem that hosts wildlife, educating the public and building a long term data set to monitor the health of the ecosystem. All of this work is accomplished through collaboration with local organizations and experts including: Maine Audubon; Southern Maine Conservation Collaborative; Friends of Deering Oaks; and US Fish & Wildlife.

About King Middle School

King Middle School’s mission is to awaken our students to the possibilities around them, as leaders in their own learning. To instill a sense of wonder and personal agency that can only be achieved through the exploration of real-world challenges and their potential solutions. To accept students as they are, and in so doing, encourage them to discover their best selves. 


King Middle School is part of the Southern Maine Conservation Collaborative Climate Change Observatory Network, a photo monitoring program designed to work with environmental organizations and communities to assist with the observation, measurement and documentation of long-term climate change trends and climate adaptation projects.
