Support from Erie County Environmental Education Institute

MAP offers Growing Green youth opportunities to explore the natural world and their personal connections to it.

This summer, thanks to support from the Erie County Environmental Education Institute, Inc. (ECEEI) and Buffalo Audubon Society, our youth will get out on the water and into the woods!

During the summer and fall of the Growing Green program, MAP staff facilitate weekly educational lessons on our farm to encourage 20 to 30 youth participants to think deeply about concepts such as sustainable farming and local food systems, globalization, economy, environmental impact and personal responsibility.

A grant from ECEEI will fund a 2-hour lake science program with Buffalo Urban Outdoor Education aboard the fantastic schooner Spirit of Buffalo, and travel costs to participate in an overnight camping trip at a Buffalo Audubon Society nature preserve, Beaver Meadow Audubon, in nearby Wyoming County.
