The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced that Bigfork (Montana) High School students Colten Wroble and Ryan Cantrell are recipients of the 2020 President’s Environmental Youth Award.
The students were recognized on Earth Day for developing a website, www.eBatsMT.com, as members of the Bigfork High School Cave Club, which helps cavers collect information on bat populations. They are among 35 students in grades K-12 who were recognized by the President’s Council on Environmental Quality and the EPA for producing an outstanding environmental project.
The project leverages ArcGIS Online capabilities and has been supported by the Esri education and conservation grant programs. Bigfork High School students and educator/caver Hans Bodenhamer were featured presenters at the 2010 Esri User Conference.
