Second Youth Environmental Action Summit

SALISBURY, Md.- It was an exciting day at the Ward Museum in Salisbury as 175 students gathered for the Youth Environmental Action Summit.

Students from Wicomico, Worcester, and Somerset counties took to the youth conference to present environmental projects to teachers and members of the community.

We were told that events like this one will let students actually put ideas into action with different community partners and learn through the process.

“I think it adds to our sense of place, it brings youth and different community leaders and members to the community together to work together to make this a better place, but they’re also learning really good life skills in the process, how to come up with a project and how to budget,” Kristen Sullivan, Executive Director of Ward Museum.

We are told that this was the second Youth Environmental Action Summit.
