[ARCHIVED] Amherst High School Environmental Clubs Invite Public to Initiatives

Two student groups at the Amherst Regional High School are seeking to spread the word within our broader community on some of their upcoming environmental initiatives. 

  1. Sunrise Amherst is collaborating with students from Amherst Regional High School on the Amherst Art for Clean Energy anthology project, which compiles written and visual art inspired by nature and environmental action, made by Amherst students and residents ages 5-18. After reviewing submissions, they will publish them and sell the final anthology to the general Amherst community. 100% of the profits will go toward converting coal energy to clean energy through the Beyond Coal™ organization. Submit your artwork here: www.bit.ly/artforcleanenergy! The deadline to submit is April 7, 2021. If you have any questions, please email artforcleanenergy@gmail.com
  2. The Environmental Action club from Amherst Regional High School has partnered with an organization called Tree-Plenish to plant trees in the Amherst community! Their goal is 230 trees, which will offset the school’s yearly paper consumption. THE NEXT 40 TREES ARE FREE. If you or anyone you know would like to request a tree, go to https://www.tree-plenishevents.org/amherst. Trees are only $5, and you can opt for volunteers to plant them for you! We’re offering red oak, red maple, or river birch saplings; pictures of these trees are on the website. You can also sign up to volunteer for our planting event on April 24th through the same website. Please order your trees by March 24th. If you have any questions, please contact Grace at garmangg@arps.org Ally at brauar@arps.org or Emily at wangef@arps.org
