Green Mobility Network was proud to partner with Palmetto Senior High’s CLEO Club for their Environmental Fair on May 22. Other organizations attending included the Sierra Club, Tropical Audubon Society, University of Florida among various others, including individual student-led environmental projects.
With the focus of the fair on environmental initiatives, GMN highlighted its Friends of the Ludlam Trail (FOLT) campaign. Students were educated about the multitude of environmental factors associated with the project. Eric Katz, GMN program manager, presented students with a multitude of trail renderings, maps and diagrams explaining FOLT’s goals toward pine rocklands restoration, bonneted bat conservation and how reduced carbon emissions from riding bikes equals cleaner air.
It was a honor to be present at the fair with so many other amazing local organizations. Some students were completely unaware of the Ludlam corridor that was just minutes from their homes, while some were already involved with our campaign and extremely supportive of our efforts. Special thanks to CLEO Club organizers Ms. Amy Leaonard and Ms. Shalla Sorensen. We look forward to the next fair!
