Youth Environmental Stewards
Friday, February 29, 2008 @ Noon
About the Salon
North East Trees, Youth Environmental Stewards will discuss what they learn when they join the YES program. How this connection of skills training relates to environmental justice,urban forestry and global climate changes.
While giving them exposure to issues dealing with urban forestry the vocational track enables the youth to build their resume and take on proactive roles in their community beyond the training both both locally and globally.
