We’re thrilled that 18 registered PLT GreenSchools have been recognized this year as part of the U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools program.
Four teachers share their experiences from students’ GreenWorks! projects to help pollinators with native plant gardens, a bee keeping operation, and constructing bat houses.
Nearly 5,000 students, from kindergarten to high school, are helping to design and lead a variety of projects to green their schools and improve forests, watersheds, and wildlife habitat.
Teachers, students, school and district staff, educational leaders, building industry professionals, non-profit partners and others who are passionate about making green, healthy schools a reality are invited to attend.
The awards acknowledge the students, teachers, and school administrators who are working to improve the sustainability, health, and safety of school facilities; ensure nutrition and fitness practices; and engage students in real-world learning.
