BEF Obtains $20,000 Mozilla Grant for Kalapuya High School

Thanks to Bethel Education Foundation’s efforts, a $20,000 grant will soon send Kalapuya High School students out in the field for a mapping project with the Army Corps of Engineers.

Kalapuya students will assist with a comprehensive mapping of invasive species and culturally important plants around Fern Ridge Reservoir. They will also monitor the ecological restoration projects KHS students have completed in recent years.

The grant from the Mozilla Gigabit Community Fund will provide handheld Geographic Information System (GIS) computers, allowing KHS students to stream the GIS data back to the Army Corps.
