It’s time to take action! Registration is now open for the Take Action SC Environmental Educators Virtual Workshop scheduled for Tuesday, July 27, from 9 a.m. to noon. Hosted by the S.C.

This year’s workshop will feature special guest speaker and artist Kirkland Smith. University of South Carolina’s Sustainability Director, Larry Cook, will teach on sustainable literacy. Other highlights include curriculum lessons and demonstrations; virtual field trips; Student Ambassadors for Sustainability Program presentations; and partner updates from the S.C.

The goal of the Take Action Partnership is to provide a program that informs, inspires and empowers students and teachers to protect and preserve the environment.
