A high school in Keizer, OR, is beginning to raise money for a new sports field to be installed with synthetic turf. The high school, McNary High School, says if it raises $1 million, they'll be able to get rid of their irregular and inconvenient natural grass field which has patches of dead grass scattered across its face and replace it with synthetic turf, which will save the school district money and increase usability. The school hopes to start converting their current fields to synthetic turf this summer and to have it completed by the next school year.
