Empowering the Next Generation of Climate Champions

Making a difference in our watershed means building relationships with the individuals who live, work, and play throughout its lands and waters. Uniting communities under one mission is one of our biggest strengths at the Alliance. Through a wide variety of programs, we connect people to their local rivers and streams, where they become directly involved in local restoration efforts. It’s an approach that builds resiliency among our communities and landscapes to continually adapt to an ever-changing world.

Emma always wanted to help fight climate change, but it isn’t easy for a High School student to feel empowered to make a real impact. Northeastern School District’s partnership with the Alliance offered Emma and her classmates the opportunity to improve the quality of their local stream. In Emma’s case, the project provided a fresh perspective on her future education plans.
