We are all stewards of the environment


The environmental club, in partnership with community members designed an aquaponics project which utilizes a vertical garden, fish and a fish tank. Through this project, the environmental club will raise tilapia and eventually trout to repopulate local streams and provide fish for the school’s cooking class. Additionally, the plant wall will act as a natural insulator, thus reducing the school’s heating costs and carbon footprint. In the past, the environmental club has also worked on maintaining the health of a local stream, operating beach clean-up days, conducting fish surveys and removing invasive species from parks.
