The Verde River is more than just a place to recreate.
Clarkdale-Jerome School, in partnership with the Verde Natural Resource Conservation District, has received a $500 award from the Sustainable Economic Development Initiative — called the Sustainable in Education for the 21st Century Award for its Top Ten Wanted Dead or Alive Species Program.
The program educate the seventh-grade students about the economic, social and ecological impact of native and invasive species in the Verde River Basin.
