The Sweetwater County Conservation District presented a check for $5,000 to Green River High School students from the Green River FFA last Thursday. The FFA students applied for and received a Community Enhancement Grant. The grant is for groups and organizations working on projects to promote and enhance natural resources. The funds will go toward the future GRHS Agriculture Facility project which will be located on East Teton Boulevard. The plan is for the agriculture facility to include barns and stables for pigs, sheep, goats and cows as well as a greenhouse. The facility will give kids "hands on agricultural experience," FFA Director Liz Thoman said. The funds from the conservation district will help get the land cleared and fencing put up for the facility this summer, and Thoman hopes to have the goat and sheep barn done this fall.
