Bluegrass Youth Sustainability Council

BYSC LogoThe Bluegrass Youth Sustainability Council was formed in August of 2011 and is a project-based organization composed of a cross-section of environmentally passionate students from Fayette County's five public high schools, Sayre School, Lexington Catholic High School, Lexington Christian Academy and Montessori High School of KY. Mentored by Tresine Logsdon and local organizations with a passion for sustainability, the BYSC meets monthly to discuss collaborative outreach projects, short-term and long-term goals, partnership prospects and leadership and post-secondary opportunities in all areas of sustainability including energy management, outdoor classrooms, waste management, water quality and air quality.  Our culminating and largest collaborative event is the spring Earth Day Celebration.

The BYSC serves as an extraordinary leadership and collaborative opportunity for our area youth leaders who deeply care about environmental quality and are motivated to work together with local experts and volunteers on projects to improve sustainability.  Simply put, the BYSC is a team of likeminded individuals poised to raise awareness and promote improved sustainability throughout our community and our world.
