Youth Environmental Education

The Environmental Fun Day is an educational day hosted by the Wheatley River Improvement Group and the Hunter-Clyde Watershed Group for our local schools.  Students from Central Queens Elementary, Gulf Shore Consolidated, and our local homeschool group join us to rotate through 6 different stations that focus on various elements of the environment.  The site of the event alternates between Rackham’s Pond in the Wheatley River watershed and the Gardens of Hope in the Hunter River watershed.  It is wonderful to engage the grade 6 students and see their enthusiasm for the outdoors; hopefully this day will help to foster a long-term interest in environmental health for some!
