Green Roof Project
The New Trier Educational Foundation committed to raise $100,000 towards completion of the south green roof on the Winnetka campus.
The expansion of the Winnetka Campus presented an opportunity for the installation of two green roofs outside the 4th floor of the new building. Triship and Girls’ Club committed to $100,000 for the north green roof while the Foundation matched that for the south green roof.
The roof is being put to good use for many different activities. A sculpture class has created site specific sculptures for the space. Art teachers bring their classes to the green roof for team building activities and to photograph artwork in natural light. The space is also being used by advisories for mindfulness practices and gatherings for various clubs.
In 2020, a greenhouse will be added to the space. Click here for more information.
