Eco-Camps a Success!

Friends sponsored Summer Eco-Camps were a massive success this year! 127 Virgin Islands youth attended one of six camps during July and the beginning of August. Thank you to all our sponsors who made this possible: Paul M. Angell Family Foundation, Lana Vento Charitable Trust, Disney Cruise Line, R&I Patton Goldsmithing, Anne Spychala Family Charitable Foundation, Starboard Investments, Glacial Energy VI, International Capital & Management Company, Rotary Club of St. John, VI-EPSCoR and the National Science Foundation.

Stay tuned for the Summer issue of Tidings, our newsletter, for a recap of all the fun!

Blue Flags & Free Senior Passes 

After over a year of planning, Blue Flags finally fly over four of our unique beaches across the Virgin Islands. Our very own Trunk Bay is the first Blue Flag designated beach in any US National Park! The Blue Flag program is an environmental award given to beaches and marinas making a special effort to implement sound management with respect to the local environment and nature, while also providing users with information on local environmental issues. In order to attain Blue Flag status, beaches and marinas have to comply with a number of strict criteria concerning environmental information and education, environmental management, safety and service facilities, and water quality.
