BAINBRIDGE – Students at Bainbridge-Guilford Central High School are learning to “think green.” The school's environmental issues class has students participating in a variety of activities and has gone on a few field trips to learn about, understand and help the environment since the beginning of the semester.
“We had a presenter, Detective Shackelton from (Department of Environmental Protection), that explained about the reservoirs and the importance of them to the people in (New York City),” said B-G student Amber Giles. “Mr. Shackelton also explained the role of the DEP police officers, historically and currently.”
With the increased demand for awareness and sensitivity about the environment and environmental challenges, schools across the country are including more curriculum that emphasizes knowledge and understanding about the environment and what environmental challenges lay ahead for future generations.
