Program Mission

Environmental Education provides our community with resources to explore nature and environmental issues through hands on activities, crafts, field trips, and workshops. EE aspires to connect local under-served youth with their surroundings while instilling within them a sense of responsibility, appreciation, and stewardship for our environment.

Service, Goals & Projects

Environmental Education works with local youth fostering stewardship of the environment and excitement about discovering the world around them. We work weekly with elementary after school programs and students on Friday afternoons playing games, doing recycled material crafts, and teaching different lesson plans with an environmental theme.
