35 students from The Howard School continue "Environmental Connections," for 2014.
"Environmental Connections" is an environmental education and outdoor classroom project engaging The Howard School in Chattanooga and staff and volunteers from the Lookout Mountain Conservancy.
Tennessee American Water Company provided funding for the pilot project last fall.
Now, the students have been working to help clean up John C. Wilson Park on Cummings Highway.
"Through projects such as this, young people make important environmental connections between their lifestyle choices and the world around them," says Melissa Greever, Science Teacher for the Howard School.
"By taking our students into the field and giving them the tools to explore the natural world, they see the real impact of how we all can make a difference taking care of our environment."
