GARNA provides hands-on learning for 590 students this fall!

YELP 2018- Fall Programs Update

Our fall season’s Youth Ecological Literacy Programming, YELP, has begun to slow down as the cold weather has settled in. This season was fantastically filled with educational programs for Chaffee and Lake County School Districts. We were able to reach 590 elementary through high school students through School-Based and Enrichment programs. In YELP Programs, students participate in hands-on activities related to various environmental topics to bring school curriculum to life and deepen students’ connection with the natural world. Thanks to the participating school districts, teachers, volunteers, and coordinators for making this season such a success! Here’s a snapshot of happened what this fall:
