CBS4 News in Miami recently featured GEN2050 and our focus on environmental awareness and sustainability in its series “Mentoring Matters.”

Do you know any middle and high school students who could benefit from the GEN2050 program?  For information on how to register for upcoming Environmental Awareness Academy STEAM field trips, as well as “New Bee” beekeeping classes, please email:
