Co-Authors: Amy McCauley, Tamara Mittman, Nicole Fernandes and George Friday
Abstract: Project BLUE and Environmental Justice Summer are two examples of Parks & People's initiatives to educate young people in Baltimore City about the ecosystem in which we live. Project BLUE is an enrichment component of SuperKids Camp, providing hands-on watershed education for rising 1st and 2nd graders. Environmental Justice Summer worked with teens in Watershed 263, giving them the information and tools they need to take action to improve their local environment.
