Representatives with the Town of Boone have been working this week to educate students at area schools about how to live environmentally friendly.
The town’s water conservation coordinator, Andrea Gimlin, said she paid Two Rivers Community School a visit on Monday. Gimlin said Boone’s recycling coordinator, Marsha Story, joined her on Tuesday to visit with students at Watauga High School, and today several town representatives spoke to students at Hardin Park Elementary.
Gimlin said a tool they have used to teach students this week is called an enviroscape.
These enviroscapes are models that depict various water and water quality scenarios.
Watauga County Cooperative Extension’s Wendy Patoprsty and Andi Cochran, of Appalachian State, helped Gimlin and Story present enviroscapes today at Hardin Park.
