I volunteered at the Wyland Living Green Fair at the Port of Long Beach's Green Port festival. The festival showcased organizations that are actively involved in making a positive difference in the health of our planet's environment. The Wyland Foundation brought it's mobile learning center to the event and had booths staffed with friendly and knowledgeable guides. Wyland, the internationally acclaimed marine wildlife artist painted a beautiful mural with children who attended the event. The food, weather, music and especially the community of energetic and passionate people helped to make this a meaningful and fun event.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the education of people, especially children who come through the mobile learning center and those who are moved by the beauty of our marine life as captured in Wyland's art.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
look at new innovative new ways to communicate with our youth, perhaps connecting with them through different mediums like graphic novels, short documentaries, etc.
Volunteer & I helped behind the scenes with setup and closing and guided groups through the mobile learning center.
