River Trails Green Schools will lead the way in promoting environmental sustainability within our community and schools by inspiring our students and staff to protect the environment and be responsible global citizens.


  • Empower students and the community to understand their natural world and their impact on it.
  • Provide opportunities for students to make connections between the science they learn and the science they experience in their natural environment.
  • Create opportunities for the community and school to understand how people, energy, and the environment are dynamically interrelated.
  • Promote the health and well-being of students, staff, and community.
  • Instill a sense of respect and ownership of one’s environment that fosters advocacy and activism.
