The Westville Environmental Commission is a dedicated group of individuals working together to promote environmental awareness and provide opportunities for youngsters to participate in making a difference in their community. The grounds surrounding Parkview School including the park has benefited greatly from their efforts. In the past few years this group has provided opportunities for students to design art for the butterfly garden, plant trees to preserve the banks and learn about the benefits of a rain garden. We welcome the Westville Environmental Commission's involvement in our school.
