O'MALEY ACADEMY ENVIRONMENTAL CLUB
Join this group of passionate students to make a difference in your own school, helping the community address climate change issues. Team members will be challenged to choose initiatives that develop real life solutions inspired by the motto “Think Globally by Acting Locally”. Learn about how the climate is changing right here in Gloucester, affecting local species and causing phenomenon such as sea level rise. We will have the opportunity to take local field trips to connect with local community leaders in the environmental movement. We will explore the natural world around us by learning wilderness survival skills while hiking in the woods, or by strapping on our muck boots to explore the flora and fauna in the nearby mudflats. Come have tons of fun with friends while also making a difference in your school and community!
