A grassroots organization dedicated to protecting the environment in the Inland Northwest, The Lands Council serves as a leading conservation voice in the region. In addition to protecting thousands of acres of public land—and thus helping preserve local forests and wildlife—The Lands Council funds Project SUSTAIN, an effort to provide local students with outdoor, hands-on learning activities.
Project SUSTAIN combines in-class lessons with field trips to teach students about forests, water, wildlife, and sustainability. Through this program, students have planted nearly 2,000 trees and potted more than 50 seedlings. For leader Kat Hall, the real joy of the project is seeing the direct effect on students as they plant trees along a waterway in the Saltese Uplands or build and race their own solar-powered mini cars.
