Amelia Gulling, administrator of the Desert Research Institute’s GreenPower Program, was named the “2012 Amazing Individual” by the Nevada chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council. GreenPower is an environmental outreach organization that works with the Washoe County School District, providing teachers and students with curriculum, programs and research opportunities related to environmental and climate change awareness.

In September, Gulling helped students at Jerome Middle School start a garden with edible native plants. She also helped teachers in Southern Nevada obtain certificates in environmental studies, and is developing a recycling program in Henderson.
