June 2016 PAESTAR

This month we recognize our friends of the Healthy People, Healthy Planet Summer Camp & Community Project Incubator program at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. Their one-week summer camp (June 21-25) will provide high school student/teacher teams high impact, immersive environmental education experiences, while acting as a community environmental project incubator by providing seed money for projects of the students’ choosing. This program will fill the void in post-elementary school environmental education opportunities for young people, solidifying their interest in environmental stewardship and positively impacting their communities. Financial support for the camp is from EconomicPennsylvania and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Education grant program.

Congratulations, Slippery Rock University for your innovative program - you clearly are a PAESTAR!
