A retention pond across from the Broken Arrow High School has turned into an outdoor classroom for several science students.
School officials said the City of Broken Arrow and Broken Arrow Public Schools announced last fall a partnership to improve the water quality in the detention pond across from the high school.
The City of Broken Arrow and @BASchools officially launched the Tiger Creek floating wetlands today.

City staff and students also created a floating wetland in the design of the "BA" logo, school officials said.
“We want to create something that is useful for the students at Broken Arrow High School and beneficial to the public in general, while at the same time fulfills our obligation as a City to control storm water runoff and protect property within the watershed,” said Broken Arrow Assistant City Manager Kenny Schwab.
