A brief description of the program:

The Geo-Adventurers is a student club that puts on green gardening seminars, camps under the leave no trace philosophy, brings in guest lecturers on sustainability, and works to teach others how to love the planet while enjoying it. This year members of the club have been kayaking, camping, caving and geo caching. They handed out seeds in the local parade, participated in the Ohio River Sweep and the Coastal Cleanup. They also have been instrumental in gathering scientific data on debris accumulation in the Ohio River.
