School Partners

Learning Gate Community School is partners with Dr. Daniel Yeh of the University of South Florida College of Engineering on a USGBC-sponsored project to study integrated building water management (IBWM).

For the project, detailed water usage data from the green classrooms will be collected and analyzed with the assistance of LG students and staff and used to facilitate the development of the IBWM model.

"Lowe’s is committed to improving the schools that are guiding tomorrow’s employees, homeowners and community leaders,” said Larry D. Stone, chairman of Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation.

“Learning Gate Community School’s commitment to sustainability in an educational setting is also preparing its students to be good environmental stewards, and we’re proud to support that initiative."

Nvirotect Pest Control cares about you, your family and the environment. We also care about offering effective Green Pest Control Services to protect your home and workplace from unwanted visitors who may not only be a nuisance, but who can also pose dangerous threats to your health and safety. People often ask us if it is possible to offer environmentally friendly pest control that really works? We refer the question to our thousands of residential and commercial customers throughout Southwest Florida and the answer we get time and time again is YES.

Tampa Bay, Florida's largest open-water estuary, stretches 398 square miles at high tide. Popular for sport and recreation, the bay also supports one of the world's most productive natural systems. Estuaries like Tampa Bay, where salt water from the sea and fresh water from rivers and uplands mix, are nurseries for young fish, shrimp, and crabs. More than 70 percent of all fish, shellfish, and crustaceans spend some critical stage of their development in these nearshore waters, protected from larger predators that swim the open sea.
