We are thrilled to welcome our four participants for the fall Environmental Leadership Intensive (ELI)! The four participants will live on campus with us and spend the next 15 weeks immersed in practical, hands-on experiences and field-based seminars focused on environmental education, non-profit administration, leadership development and field natural history. The ELI participants include (left to right):
