Stewardship Extension

After the traditional in-class lesson and field study trip, teachers participating in the Greenway Education Program may register their students for an optional stewardship extension day to take their students on a community service experience that further enriches their hands-on experience. Depending on the season, students will remove invasive plants, work in the native tree nursery or plant trees and shrubs.

We can reimburse you for up to $250 per bus for the stewardship event(s). You pay for the bus and then submit the receipt to our main office and we will reimburse you. Please do this within one month of your field trip.
