News and Updates from Our Members

For 20 years, a 170’ x 35’ courtyard at Batavia High School, a result of building expansions, has been underutilized; filled only by a couple of trees, green grass, and a picnic table. The BHS Eco Club, however, under the director of Cultural Studies teacher Elizabeth Faulhaber, had a vision of converting this space into an environmental project that would benefit their club studies, in addition to all students at the high school in a multitude of ways. The BHS Eco Club presented a plan to BHS administration, for transforming the space into a tranquil retreat for student mental health breaks and reflection, a science and ecology club classroom, and service project opportunity for special needs students.
