Avon Lake’s Ozone Garden, the first of its kind along the Great Lakes and the only one in Ohio to be a part of the International Ozone Garden Network, will be maintained by Avon Lake High School’s environmental classes. Teacher Ashley Johnson’s classes will collect data to help NASA monitor air quality in the area and the National Center for Atmospheric Research, along with the Smithsonian Institution, Harvard University and other global universities, interprets the data in the International Ozone Garden Network.

Dedication of the garden will be held at 12:45 p.m Oct. 14 at Avon Lake Public Library. An interactive kiosk in the children’s department will illustrate the importance of healthy ground ozone. The garden was made possible by the Avon-on-the-Lake Garden Club, along with Boy Scouts, programmer Victor Pudelski and Avon Lake’s Digital Media and Public Works departments.
