Greendale schools accepted into school forest program

Greendale — The woods near Canterbury Elementary and Greendale Middle School have been registered as school forests within the Wisconsin Community Forest Program.

The certification will allow for the expansion of the district's outdoor classroom space and increase opportunities within the existing curriculum at all grade levels and across disciplines.

As a registered school forest, Greendale Schools will be eligible to receive free forest management assistance from the Department of Natural Resources and free seedling from the state nursery program. The district will also be able to apply for grants from the Wisconsin Environmental Education Board and to receive assistance from a state-wide school forest education specialist.
