PCHS Green Team teaches environmental awareness
Published 11:05 pm Tuesday, May 28, 2013
On May 1-2, Polk County High School’s Green Team members participated in a recycling and conservation presentation at the county’s elementary schools.
Tryon’s park committee generously provided 200 seedlings, which allowed Green Team leadership (Ben Stockdale, Mason Umlauf and Emily Kocher) and other members to complete their second annual Earth Day awareness presentation.
Using fun and engaging activities, the members helped educate elementary students across the county about the need for proper recycling, the importance of Polk County’s recycling program and emphasized overall environmental awareness. At the end of the presentation, members handed out pine seedlings to the elementary students that were ready for them to plant at home. John Vining helped acquire the seedlings.
