WHEN IS A GREENHOUSE MUCH MORE?

Central High School in Milton has a new state-of-the-art greenhouse as a result of a partnership with Florida's Department of Environmental Protection, the Santa Rosa County School Board, the Nature Conservancy, the University of Florida at Milton and Three Rivers Resource Conservation and Development Council.

Students will learn
about the varying ecosystems in which they live while they propagate, or cultivate native plants to be used in local wetland
and dune restoration projects including
the endangered
Perdido Key Beach Mouse habitat, creating and restoring salt marshes in local marine ecosystems, and restoring seepage slopes at state parks and state forestry lands.


Could we also be propagating future environmentalists?
