An eagle’s eye view of the Jesse Bethel High School campus revealed a “clean” but stark sea of concrete to students.
The American Forest Foundation’s Al Stenstrup asked a small audience of students and teachers on Tuesday to put on their figurative green-tinted glasses to think of ways to make the school campus a more environmentally friendly and sustainable place for students to work and learn.
Aiding in the school’s effort to put the students in the driver’s seat to make the school “greener” is a $10,000 grant, newly available to Bethel’s Green Academy this year. The academy, in its first year, has a goal of training students for “green careers,” and was limited to sophomores this year.
