Bright Stars Preschool is one of 63 schools across the country who have been awarded Project Learning Tree’s GreenWorks! Service Learning Grant. Bright Stars installed an outdoor nature classroom this past Summer. Parents, staff, family and contractors volunteered time and funds. Donations of supplies and technical assistance were made by the Langwater Farm, members of the Easton Garden Club and The Town of Easton DPW. This valuable participation of the community is one of requirements of this competitive grant.
With this grant, the outdoor classroom will be made more sustainable with rain barrels and compost bins, and an expanded curriculum will educate the children about the natural environment.
