The Teton Science Schools partnered with a number of organizations this past October to hold The Wyoming Youth Congress on Children and Nature. Eighth graders from every school district across Wyoming were invited to attend the Congress. While attending the Congress youth were asked to share the factors involved in the growing divide between children and nature, as well as possible solutions. In summary, youth were the consultants and adults were the audience.
The Teton Science Schools recently published a Final Report on the Congress. You can access the report at our website: http://www.tetonscience.org
