Talbot County High School Students Make a Difference in the Environment!

MRC has developed and is teaching an innovative conservation education program, designed to meet the state’s new environmental literacy requirements. The curriculum comprises ten days of combined classroom and field study. Two high schools and 120 students are participating this school year, and two additional high schools have signed up for the fall of 2014. In November, under MRC supervision, students from Easton and St. Michaels High Schools planted over 3,000 trees on over seven acres of tributary buffer previously in row crop agriculture on town and county lands! This summer, MRC will begin working closely with teachers in this new program, equipping our schools to instill the values of environmental stewardship in their students.
