5th Annual Youth Earth Summit invigorates local high school environmental clubs
by Katie Fleming (from RE Sources' January 2013 Blog)
“We tell students that individual actions add up to big changes. I bring my students to YES so that they know they're part of a bigger movement. It's great to see the synergism of getting these enthusiastic, green oriented kids together,” said Victor Garcia, a science teacher from Anacortes High School.
“It was a fun, informational and inspiring day! The students and teachers from Mount Vernon, Squalicum, Nooksack Valley, Anacortes and Emerson High Schools are awesome. They do so much important environmental work in their schools and communities. I look forward to seeing what they accomplish next.” said Katie Fleming, RE Sources’ education staff.
The event was funded by the EPA Climate Showcase Communities Grant and Padilla Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
