Project Title & Description
Environmental Awareness Project
The goal of the Environmental Awareness Project (EAP) is to immerse Vacamas Academy students in a full survey of the Camp Vacamas environment including exploration of the indigenous plants and trees, wildlife, aquatic life and insect life. They will also explore potential dangers to the area both natural and man-made. The EAP will combine field studies with research that will culminate in the creation of a nature trail on site and a web site dedicated to disseminating the students' findings. EAP will develop environmental stewardship by educating low-income and culturally diverse students in formal and nonformal settings about environmental issues and encouraging the dissemination of environmental information.
