Our Green Leaders programming is designed to get students independently active and instill a lifelong passion and appreciation for nature. Programs are designed to promote teamwork, personal development, and develop an active role in the defense and enjoyment of nature. Students will build upon advanced topics in plants, animals, abiotic factors, ecosystems and sustainability to develop their own unique perspective and passions for the natural environment. Through our programs, students will learn how to be an active participant in nature activities and further their passion and intelligence for the benefit of the natural world and human society.
