We are a grassroots, community-based environmental justice organization focused on creating impactful, sustainable + equitable pathways in environmental stewardship, STEAM + aquatics through raising awareness, advocating for policy + inspiring the next generation of activists.
If we're talking about protecting our planet - we should also be talking about protecting each other. If we're talking about loving our planet - we should also be talking about loving each other. Environmental, climate + social justice are all interconnected just as we are.
