Environmental Youth Leadership
What is an Environmental Youth Leader (EYL)?
Financial Support from State Farm for Youth-Led Initiatives
The Cathance River Education Alliance is creating a three prong approach to local watershed education by creating a higher profile of our underappreciated nearby Merrymeeting Bay, monitoring a feeder river (the Cathance River) in a more thorough and systematic way with nearby Bowdoin College, and training environmental youth leaders and mentors from area schools to carry forth an ongoing mentoring campaign in the areas of watershed education and sustainability concepts. By creating relationships with our local schools, colleges, area professionals, and environmental organizations we are creating service learning opportunities for three school districts that will reap the benefits for years to come. Financial support from State Farm Insurance has been instrumental in getting this project off of the ground – like a good neighbor – State Farm is there!
