SEA Annual Summer Education Program Project Report
By Akua C. Jackson - Development Coordinator
The goal of SEA's summer progam is for participants to have alot of fun exlporing our natural world while also learning to treasure and advocate for protection of the environmental resources that make St. Croix a special place.
So far this summer we have worked with more than 300 young people, visiting over 7 summer camps. Among other activities, participants have gone to the Seashell Museum, taken a tour of the Botanical Gardens, conducted flora and fauna scavenger hunts, and gone birding.
Additionally, participants have learned about some of the environmental issues facing our island. They assisted in surveying our local community about their concerns. This year we have had the honor of working with the East End Marine Park, a local biologist who runs the Seashell Museum and local artisans and culture bearers. This summer has been a ton of fun for us all, especially after the year we have had.
The unfettered joy participants exude at the freedom of exploring nature after over a year of online schooling takes on a heartbreaking tenor when we think about how much we are up against in safeguarding our earth for them, for future generations. SEA is deeply grateful for your support. It allows us to provide these experiences of connection for our youth. We continue to believe that programs like ours grow the environmental stewards we need to protect and preserve St. Croix, indeed our whole earth.
