Green Team workshops

Green Team workshops are ideal for leadership groups, environmental clubs or life skills classes interested in projects such as improving or expanding the school recycling program, stenciling storm drains with "Dump No Waste" messages, planting native gardens, or educating peers or younger students about environmental topics. Teams that complete projects are eligible to win prizes and recognition. Read about current secondary school Green Team Projects for ideas or inspiration.
