BEF gives a grant to NOLS, works to restore Teton River
The Bonneville Environmental Foundation gave a grant to the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) to begin installation of a Solar Array on its building in Driggs, Idaho. NOLS teaches outdoor skills and leadership to students from around the world and is receiving additional funds from its local electric utility, Fall River Electric Cooperative. Construction should begin sometime this summer.
Coincidentally, BEF is also working to restore the Teton River near Driggs, one of its 12 Model Watershed Projects located throughout the Northwest and California. In this video, BEF President Angus Duncan talks about both projects and explains how BEF works with communities to make a positive difference for our environment.
