Just got back from a terrific stay in Maryland, specifically in the DelMarVa region, presenting at the second annual, Get Out! Get Green! Get Paid! Conference to encourage local youth to consider careers related to the Great Outdoors!
I had the good fortune to work with the dedicated Carrie Samis, who directs the program, and my esteemed co-panelists, Dr. Bert Davis, President, Zoological Society of Milwaukee; Frederick Tutman, Patuxent Riverkeeper; Academy Award winning filmmaker Errol Webber; and Brittany Smith of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Outdoor Afro is proud to partner with the amazing Coastal Steward youth to foster their outdoor leadership, so look out for forthcoming information that shares more of what we plan to accomplish together!
Thanks to everyone, especially the National Parks Service, Maryland Coastal Bays, and EPA for producing such an important event!
For now, here are just a few images that convey the spirit of camaraderie, dedication, and excitement about youth and their families connecting meaningfully to nature:
