Sustainable Forest and Wildlife Fund, and Youth Advisory Committee President Madison Bagwell, and Jenna Rubick, also from the foundation’s YAC, present a check for $2,000 to Steve Ostrenga, a Rapid River School teacher. The funds will be utilized for the school’s Project Greenhouse, in which students grow various fruits and vegetables, which are used by the school in its hot lunch program; and plant tree seedlings, which will be planted back in nature. Ostrenga thanked the foundation and its Youth Advisory Committee for their generous gift helping students learn about growing their own food and a natural resource.
