Project Title & Description
Outdoor Program for low-income and Culturally Diverse Youth
T.R.E.E. will expand its five-day, four-night Sunship Earth education program to include John Dibert Elementary School in New Orleans, LA., an inner-city public school whose population is 94% minority. This popluation of students is particularly lacking in knowledge about environmental issues and will thus benefit greatly from T.R.E.E.'s hands-on approach to environmental education. Educating these youngsters about the issues directly affecting their lives as residents of the area commonly called "Cancer Alley" will do much to advance the cause of environmental justice described in the EPA's Environmental Education grant guidelines.
