Project Title & Description
Environmental Justice Small Grants Program
This project includes outdoor and nature-based education activities about clean water and air relating to local causes, effects, extent, prevention, reduction, and elimination of water and air pollution, including educational monitoring of local water and air pollution, and leadership skills development, to educate the community on clean water and air, build consensus, and set community priorities. Youth participating in activities will experience hands on learning as well as long term benefits to the community in relation to stewardship in the environment and formally and informally engaging in community level to ensure that environmental justice communities are proactive to prevent unequal burdens. Youth from the Denver metro communities of Park Hill, Green Valley Ranch, and Montbello will be the beneficiaries of the educational activities.
