Environmental Protection In the Caribbean (EPIC) recently launched its environmental education program for the second half of this school year 2009-2010. This period’s subjects are Marine Debris and its effect on our Coastal Environment (entirely new subject) and St. Maarten’s Wetlands (in a new "package").

Environmental education presentations will be lead by Ms. Laurie Raines. Laurie has traveled throughout the United States teaching outdoor and environmental education to students ranging from ages 3 to 18 in regions as diverse as the Appalachian mountains in Virginia to the prairies of Texas to the inner city of Washington DC. Over the past two years, Laurie has refined her field of interest to focus on wetlands, working at the Environmental Concern Wetland Learning Center where she served as the Youth Program Coordinator. She is a certified instructor for the WOW! The Wonders of Wetlands program and taught workshops across America training teachers and other educators in wetland education. Laurie holds a bachelor’s degree in English literature from James Madison University, and uses that background to integrate creative writing, poetry, and art into environmental sciences.

Presentations, excursions or clean-ups can be scheduled by calling EPIC at 5453009.
