Promoting diversity, education and community involvement to CREATE a GREENER world!
A core tenant of Amigos de Los Rios is our dedication to experimental, tactile learning. We believe strongly in the power of interactive, connective learning that gives individuals both an understanding of the scope of environmental problems, but also empowerment to feel able to solve issues that are most pertinent to their lived experience.
As part of our comprehensive, mission-driven approach to sustainability and environmental stewardship, the next generations of environmental leaders are being trained through our environmental education programs.
Our goal is to create an atmosphere of learning that is built in reality, in practice, and in experience. We want the next generation’s leaders we work with, from elementary students to collegiate aged young adults, to see and experience the value of treating nature as a “living laboratory;” a space that is both interactive and reactive. A laboratory that rewards risk, exploration, and grit, but remains grounded in safety and reason.
