On Saturday, March 19th, students from The Greenway Foundation's GLC program (Greenway Leadership Corps) were lucky enough to attend the annual Advancing Environmental Education conference, hosted by the by the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education (CAEE). Three GLC students even had an incredible chance to speak on the Youth Panel on Relevancy - the weekend's keynote panel/presentation (above). Joined by four younger students from The Greenway Foundation's Junior River Ranger program, the GLC crew were extremely impressive as they shared their perspectives as young people pursuing careers in the environmental field.
The Greenway Foundation would sincerely like to thank CAEE for providing scholarship funding to make these youths' attendance possible - not to mention two big thumbs up to the students who did an outstanding job speaking on the panel on Saturday!
The Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education’s Advancing Environmental Education Conference is annually hosted by the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education (CAEE), a statewide leader in environmental education since 1989. This year's conference, held at Auraria Campus in Denver on March 18th and 19th, offered a variety of session topics, inspiring speakers, and many opportunities for networking and discovering new ideas, tools and techniques. Attendance was free for GLC students thanks to a generous CAEE scholarship awarded to the GLC program!

SPREE’s Adventures Outside Day Camp Program held two camps in February. In the first camp, we solved the mystery of who Roxy Raccoon saw in the River. Along the way, we learned about the similarities and differences between beavers, muskrats, and river otters. We dressed up like a muskrat to learn about their adaptations, played river otter tag, and learned the anatomy of a beaver. Campers found clues to the mystery animal, including tracks, scat, and a funny smell! We closed the day by writing letters to Roxy informing her about muskrats.
In our second camp, we explored the world of birds. We went on a birding hike along the river, made bird masks and nests, and learned about the perils of migration through an obstacle course. With a beautiful day, we even had time to think about the food sources birds might use from the River and learn about them during a critter crawl.
