Lynn Dupuis, 9th & 10th grade Landscape/Horticulture Teacher at the Lower Pioneer Valley Educational Career and Technical Center (CTEC), is pleased to announce that Ludlow High School sophomore, Joslyn Torres, has been  accepted into the free summer enrichment program for high school girls - Restoration Ecology Summer Scholars- that will be held at  Mount Holyoke College. June 26-30th, from 9am-4pm daily. This field-based program introduces girls to science and practice of ecological restoration and landscape design. All students who successfully complete the program will receive a $400 earn as you learn stipend, made possible through a partnership with PeoplesBank.

According to the Restoration Ecology Summer Scholars brochure this  is a hands-on, field studies program where participants learn about key components of environmental science and restoration, including soil health, water quality, wildlife management, plant biodiversity, social issues related to ecological restoration, and restoration design. In addition the program provides a space for young women to envision themselves as environmental changemakers and leaders and gain vital skills to start them along that path.

 “Joslyn is interested in landscape design and this seemed like the perfect opportunity for her to get together with other young women to work on a project what would give her a better insight of what landscape design was all about,” commented Dupuis, who encouraged Torres to apply for this opportunity. “I also thought it would be a chance for her to see what opportunities there are for her in the future.”

 Dupuis explained that the CTEC program Joselyn currently attends is science/environmental based, “Students take classes in Landscape Design, learning how to design with the environment, including wetland and stormwater. Attending this summer program will be a great opportunity for Joslyn to use her current skills and learn new and innovative skills.”
