HCC Receives Green Workforce & Sustainability Grant

The Pigeon River Fund and the National Wildlife Federation recently awarded Haywood Community College grants totaling over $11,000 to advance the College’s green workforce and campus sustainability efforts. Haywood LID students will work with the College’s Sustainability Coordinator, Biology Department, Fish and Wildlife Department and Campus Arboretum Team on several projects to enhance the campus, including: sampling water quality in Jones Cove Creek, installing a rain garden and cisterns on campus, and restoring and enhancing native plant communities on campus. Work will begin this fall to implement the projects. (Post by Tamara Graham).
