Supporting the “Green Team”

Gary Zurakowski, Domtar Paper Tester, with students and teacher.

Sixth grade students and staff from the D.C. Everest Middle School visited the Rothschild Mill in February for a papermaking lesson and tour of the paper machine. The 32 students made a quick stop at the mill on their way to a three-day Trees for Tomorrow workshop.

Each year, the mill sponsors a 6th grade class from D.C. Everest Middle School to attend the workshop. Trees for Tomorrow is a unique natural resources school located in northern Wisconsin that focuses on a combination of field studies and classroom presentations to teach conservation values as well as demonstrate the benefits of contemporary resource management.

The 6th grade science teachers selected the students based on written applications explaining their interest in natural resources, as well as their academic strengths and personal attributes.

These students are part of a newly founded D.C. Everest Green Team. They will use their knowledge to integrate the principles of conservation and make their school more green and healthy.
