Where does your water go? And who are the people that live there?
This summer the Spoke'n Revolutions team will be traveling within the home state of North Carolina!
We're learning about the rich history of North Carolina this summer as the SpokenRev team follow the Neuse River to the coast and back.
This year, Triangle Bikeworks is partnering with the Triangle Land Conservancy to take you and 13 other teens on a 14-day trip through 18 counties and 77 towns along the Neuse River, down to the Atlantic Ocean and back. Along the way you'll learn about the people of color who changed the course of culture and conservation in North Carolina, and see the historic sites where environmental justice was born.
During the trip they'll strengthen leadership and teamwork skills, and increase self-awareness, self-reliance and self-confidence. I know, those may not be the top items of their list of things to learn, right? Don't worry, they won't even know it's happening.
This project has been made possible with a grant from Triangle Community Foundation's Environmental Conservation Awareness Program.
