Valley View students participate in educational visits with members of the community who are making eco-friendly decisions, both in their businesses and personal lives. Examples include local sustainable food production, as well as green technology in energy, building, and business practices.
Students may visit a local family who are retrofitting their house to make it more energy-efficient by adding new insulation technology, photovoltaic solar panels, and solar hot water systems. Another trip might involve learning about the principles of “leave no trace” from a park ranger.
The goal is instill in all our Valley View students an appreciation for environmental stewardship that will stay with them the rest of their lives.
