What we do.
The Nelson Environmental Leadership Academy is an afterschool club devoted to learning about environmental stewardship. Through field experiences, hands-on projects, community service, and mentoring, students make a difference in their school and the local community.
This year, students will be building a rain garden with native plants, working on education outreach for the Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary, and actively participating in Naturally Nelson hosted by the Rockfish Valley Natural History Foundation. The club meets bimonthly on a regular basis the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month.
