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.
