The KBGIB YAC is comprised of Juniors and Seniors that are
interested in making a difference in our local community. These students
complete educational training sessions via KBGIB and take part in community
service projects that help promote a cleaner and greener community.
On October 16th, KBGIB's YAC joined Driftwood Education Center staff to learn about
the ocean creatures that are affected by litter. The following students are shown in the above photo
(names are not respective to picture): Marving Barranco, Margaret Fairless, Eddie Jordahl, Kate Lane,
Luke Liles, Christopher Mays, Rachel Neal, Karizma Odom, Myracle Odom, Kenna Register, Joshua Robison,
Emma Thomas, Natalie Tindall, Travis Tindall, Tatum Troutt, Haleigh Welch, Stephen Wilkes, and Sean
and Colleen from the Driftwood Nature Center. Molly Carmical, volunteer YAC Leader
and KBGIB Board of Director member is taking the photograph and is not pictured.
Seining, or dragging a net with floaters and sinkers through the water, allowed the
students to catch and study critters safely at East Beach on St. Simons Island.
The KBGIB Youth Advisory Council cares about our environment!
Thank you YAC for your leadership and excellent example.
Students subsequently completed a Beach Sweep to collect the litter that directly affects
these ocean critters. Click HERE for photos.
