Green Jobs program teaches teens about environment
NEWARK, Del. (AP) - August 8, 2012 (WPVI) -- A group of Wilmington teenagers is spending the summer learning about environment.
Ten teens are participating in the program, which is a joint effort by the University of Delaware, the city of Wilmington and six other organizations. This summer marks the second year for the six-week program.
Activities include a visit to a water treatment plant, learning how to make maps and how scientists use geographic information. The students have also removed invasive plants from a wildlife refuge, netted aquatic creatures in Lewes and visited a dairy run by the university.
