What is the Green DuPage Patch?

GreenDuPagePatchThe Green DuPage Patch is a program designed to enhance our awareness of the environment and the issues involving it. The program looks at some of our natural resources and areas related to them. These natural resources are such a vital and integral part of our lives that we must examine what we are doing to take care of them and explore ways to conserve, preserve and care for them.  

How to Earn the Patch

Several steps are involved in earning the Patch. Choose 3 of the 5 categories (Water, 3Rs, Air, Energy, Soil)

For each of the 3 categories, 4 different steps must be completed:  

  • Explore

Investigate and learn about the natural resource or a specific topic related to it.

  • Act

Design and implement a plan or project which demonstrates care/concern for conserving/preserving/protecting/improving that natural resource.

  • Share  

Take the knowledge, concerns, and results of your project and communicate, in a meaningful way, the discoveries you have made.

  • Documentation

Each of the above three steps must be documented or substantiated in some way.

The Green DuPage Patch is funded by DuPage County.

 
Earth Flag has Impact

We have both our Earth Flag and our Ecology Flag. SCARCE has come to do a workshop with teachers, a green audit and a waste audit. The kids were involved in our audits and learned so much. From this we have improved all aspects of our school. It has made a tremendous impact on the lives of our students, parents, teachers and administrators in their personal lives.
