Riverbend Park will host a retreat for students who wish to make a difference in their communities through environmental leadership and service.
The Environmental Student Leadership Initiative (ESLI) is a Fairfax County Park Authority supported volunteer team that seeks to empower the community through environmental action. Students learn how to teach environmental topics to elementary school aged children, sample macroinvertebrates to determine stream health, recognize invasive organisms and more. This free, annual program is open to all motivated high school students in Fairfax County.
The ESLI Retreat will take place on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Riverbend Park Outdoor Classroom.
Riverbend Park is located at 8700 Potomac Hills St., Great Falls, Virginia. Participants must register by Sept. 22, 2021. For more information and to register, visit the ESLI event page.
