The mission is: To mobilize resources to ensure that Maryland’s youth experience, understand, and learn to conserve the natural environment. The advisory board and related committee members represent multiple disciplines across the public and private sectors and are drafting recommendations on solutions that will raise environmental literacy, access to nearby nature, and green career pathways for youth.
