Bethlehem High School students came out to Nazareth campus this week for an environmental education field trip. The students discussed biodiversity and invasive plant species with Director of Ecological Sustainability Carolyn Cromer and AmeriCorps Volunteer Julia Gerwe. The students also worked with Sisters, volunteers and members of the New Pioneers for a Sustainable Future to remove invasive plants in the woods near the campus lakes. The field trip was among several recent campus activities focused on ecological sustainability education. Tools used by the high school students were provided by a grant from the Victory Noll Sisters. The grant supports Laudato Si’ and their efforts toward integrated ecology and caring for Earth and all species on it.
