Board approves BLM application for land lab


February 17, 2021

Students in Green River High School’s FFA program may get the chance to work on a land lab if approved by the Bureau of Land Management.

Land labs are parcels of land set aside for various studies in agriculture or ecology

The lab would be located between Green River and Jamestown on a 5-acre section of land. The district seeks a lease from the BLM to create the land lab, though Superintendent Craig Barringer said it likely won’t be accomplished in the near future.

“There is a lot that has to happen,” he told the Sweetwater County School District No. 2 Board of Trustees last week.

Barringer said the BLM is in a 60-day hiatus and if approved, doesn’t lock the district into creating the lab. The permit would only allow the project to move forward.

If approved, Barringer said there is several years of work involved in the project before the lab could be established. Green River’s FFA program is in its sixth year of operation at GRHS. Throughout that time, several students have earned honors in the program.
