GREEN Annual Report

Newfane High School students are diverting hundreds of gallons of runoff. Motivated to help their community reduce pollution and improve water quality, students in Lockport, NY, designed, engineered, and distributed six rain barrels. Each barrel holds close to 50 gallons of rainwater and comes equipped with a water spout. The class took a field trip to Singer Farm Naturals, an organic farm run entirely on green infrastructure. Students toured the operation and donated one of the six rain barrels. They also donated barrels to Newfane Town Hall and the Niagara County Soil and Water Conservation District.

The Global Rivers Environmental Education Network is a partnership between General Motors, the nonprofit Earth Force, and local schools and conservation groups in GM communities designed to introduce youth to environmental science and careers in STEM. In 2016, GM employees from 51 facilities worked with over 15,000 students to retrieve, test and analyze water samples, and channel findings into a sustainable action plan addressing water quality in the community while helping youth better understand their impact on the environment.
