ECO Girls is a program for 2nd through 7th grade girls who live in the Southeastern Counties of Michigan. We are looking for girls who want to learn, build new friendships, and explore the natural areas of our region in a fun, respectful environment. (Although geared toward encouraging girls to participate, all children from these areas may apply to the program, regardless of gender.)
For the 2013 Fall Semester all of our sessions will be combined Roots (2nd-4th) and Shoots (5th-7th) sessions.
The program will bring together girls from a diverse range of racial, cultural, socio-economic, and religious backgrounds, with preference being given to girls with less access to green spaces and/or environmental education opportunities.
