NEXT GENERATION NATURALIST AWARD

Genesis, Award Recipient
Genesis, Award Recipient

The Access Nature division of the Lewisboro Land Trust, is proud to introduce 10 year old Genesis Loja as the first recipient of the Next Generation Naturalist Ambassador Award.

We first met fifth grader Genesis, at an Autumn Access Nature program at Croton Point Nature Center. She was passionate about sharing her knowledge of the history of Bald Eagles coming back from near extinction. She volunteered to share what she learned from her teacher Ms. Albero at Roosevelt Elementary School in Ossining. As naturalist John Philips, guided us through the life and history of the Hudson, her Scientific curiosity and questions helped to engage other families attending from the Community Center of Northern Westchester. She even translated what was said into Spanish so others could understand. 

At Access Nature we believe people with disabilities and the underserved can have the same access to nature preserves and environmental education as the general public. By creating a positive educational nature program we empower individuals and families to experience the benefits nature has to offer. Spending regular time in nature is a lifetime tool we can all enjoy.  

 

"The biggest connection I saw, was our families discovering the fact that many of Westchester's parks are free and open to the families to explore. I believe that Lewisboro Land Trust really opened the door to utilizing parks and preserves for our families, for the first time, for many who participated that day. A key piece of information that will be a lifelong benefit to all....We can not thank the Lewisboro Land Turst enought for hosting this event as it was not only fun, by also educational for our families."
