The 2nd Annual Young Environmental Stewards Conference: Virtual Edition will challenge you to discover the place you call home: who shares the outdoor space with you, how eco-healthy is your “neighborhood”, what can you do to become an #environmentalinfluencer? Using ArcGIS StoryMaps & Google Classroom as our platform we will combine real-time with on-your-own-time learning and doing.
Spend the week exploring the connections between you and your place. Each morning session will prepare you for an outdoor connection. Instead of exploring George Washington’s backyard and the Chester River, you’ll explore your own! This experience will take you beyond your computer screen and into your neighborhood to practice data collection, observe local trees and birds, explore the concept of environmental justice and put stewardship into action.
