Biking for Clean Air: A 2018-19 Success Story

In Spokane’s Hutton Elementary, a team of sixth-graders wanted to cut air pollution in their community. The Green Team launched its first-ever bike-to-school program and increased the number of cyclists by five times, to more than 100 riders each day!  By earning their Washington Green Schools’ certification in Transportation, Hutton joined hundreds of other certified green schools in the WGS network.
