Hillside gains approval for Environmental Learning Center

Email

If all goes well, students at Hillside Elementary could move some of their lessons outdoors.

Plans are in the works to create an Environmental Learning Center (ELC) at the school. An ELC is exactly what it sounds like -- a center to learn about the environment.

The center, which was approved by the New Richmond School Board last week, will feature an outdoor classroom, solar oven, garden and weather vane.
