The Conservancy was honored to contribute to the 20th anniversary celebration of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Bay-Watershed Education and Training program. Our two NOAA B-WET grants have engaged more than 50,000 Howard County middle and high school students with hands-on outdoor learning, Executive Director Meg Boyd said from the conference podium. James, an Atholton High School student and ambassador for Conservancy’s Youth Climate Institute, told the audience, “Education is such a significant component of fighting climate change, as our survival depends on the environmental literacy of our students.”
