Our Water Catchment Project is Progressing!!!
Thanks to a grant from The Benicia Sustainability Commission we have been able to add a water catchment system to our sustainability projects in the BHS garden. We have already conducted tours but plan on using it as a demonstration for our 9th grade classes as well. Pictures and a more detailed update to come soon!
BHS ECH2O Students Work with BMS to teach Water Conservation
We were very excited this year to partner with the Solano County Resource Conservation District, who is working under a grant from the Benicia Sustainability Commission, to help teach water conservation to BMS sixth graders. Our students helped run their data and accompanied the BMS students on their field trip. So proud of their mentorship!
Building a Sustainable Future in Benicia
We are grateful to the Benicia Sustainability Commission for granting us the funds we will need to implement a solar power and water catchment system at BHS. Our plan is to use this site to help educate the public and share what we learn as we carry out our project. So far students have worked to create a budget, develop a timeline using Microsoft Project, and in November 2014 they began construction!
