Golden Grove Elementary School is celebrating the award of a prestigious Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful education and beautification grant.
The news of the grant was received by teachers and Green School coordinators Estibaliz Gastesi and Marge Keller last week. According to Gastesi, the $1,000 grant will be used to plant native species that will enrich the habitat as well as provide some shadow areas.
“The students will enjoy the nature trail not only by exercising, but also by learning and by being aware of the ecological concept,” Gastesi said.
Golden Grove and Seminole Ridge High School Key Club members will team up for a day to plant native species in order to restore the natural habitat.
“The Key Club from Seminole Ridge will be a great asset in helping us plant all those trees,” Keller said.
The mission of the nonprofit Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful is to enhance the quality of life in Palm Beach County through programs and partnerships that encourage public agencies, private entities, residents and visitors to reduce litter and waste, increase recycling, beautify and maintain public spaces, and inspire future generations of environmental stewards.
