The first phase of EPIC’s twice yearly Environmental Education program which started in September is now in its final weeks. Free Environmental Education classes have been provided to clubs, community groups and hundreds of pupils and students of St. Maarten’s Primary and Secondary Schools.
EPIC encourages teachers who still wish to schedule presentations to email the foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Participants may choose from presentations on ocean pollution, the environmental challenges St. Maarten faces or on the wildlife and ecology of St. Maarten’s wetlands. Classroom presentations may be complemented by field trips to nearby wetlands or to conduct marine debris clean-ups. This school year’s second phase of EPIC’s Environmental Education presentations and excursions will commence in February 2012.
