Oilfields High School in Diamond Valley received a grant to teach students about sustainable cattle ranching.

The funding was part of the Environmental Student Action Challenge (ESAC), which funds environmental and sustainability programs and initiatives in Alberta schools.

Coordinated by the Bow Habitat Station, the program saw $14,000 invested by the Government of Alberta into 11 schools in the 2024-2024 school year.

Among those schools was Oilfields High School, which received funding to educate students on sustainable cattle ranching.

That includes rehabilitation practices and grassland preservation.

Environment Minister Rebecca Schulz was quoted in a release from the Province.

"The kids in school today are stewards of our environment tomorrow. The Environmental Student Action Challenge is helping turn student innovation into real environmental solutions for the whole community. These students are doing innovative and important work and I am excited to see the results of their projects."

Any school can apply for a grant of up to $1000 from the program.
