Seeking Participants for New LIFE Class that Begins in January 2018 The Legacy Institute for the Environment (LIFE) is seeking Maryland residents who are interested in learning more about environmental education,restoration, protection, and research programs, and who would like to help environmental nonprofit organizations in their stewardship activities.
Our 2018 Institute offers an opportunity for participants to learn more about the Chesapeake Bay’s fragile ecosystem, and then join with others in volunteer service on behalf of the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center (CBEC) in Grasonville.
The Institute provides environmental education and service learning opportunities through engaging and flexible educational sessions and field experiences. Many leading governmental agencies and an array of environmental organizations join us in offering this program that seeks to enhance environmental centers’ efforts to protect and restore the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem.
Beginning February 2018, we will hold weekly education sessions on Fridays for 9 weeks from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at CBEC. This will be followed by opportunities for hands-on activities at the center and elsewhere over the course of the year. The Institute is both informative and fun, and it offers involvement in stewardship activities that fit the time and talents of older adults.
This program is partly funded through a grant received from the United Way. We are grateful to the United Way for their support and look forward to improving upon an already successful program. If you are interested or have questions, contact Courtney Leigh at 443-262-2032
