Improvements to the Price River are underway thanks to two companies, River Restoration and Trout Unlimited. They have joined forces to start improvements on the Price River.
The companies contacted Lighthouse High School and requested the assistance of some of the students for the improvements. The project will take a few years, and in return the two organizations will be teaching science classes on ecosystems and habitat revitalization.
According to Principal Karlene Bianco, this project is something the students enjoy.
“We’re excited that these two organizations wanted to partner with our high school to provide hands-on learning about ecosystems,” she said. “Many of our students are looking into this field as a career once they graduate.”
