On Give Miami Day Please Think of NATURE LINKS. Guest Blog by Gregory Bush
Nature Links Goal: $40,000 total
Our programs benefit employable young adults 18-30 years of age with intellectual disabilities.
We started with Saturdays By the Bay- At Virginia Key Beach Park over the past two summers, to restart on November 16. Plans are moving forward to expand our programs into several five day a week programs at other locations: beginning at Miami’s Lummus Park as well as J.R.E School in South Miami, providing a wide range of activities and fun. Our program is unique in the nation.
Our programs are intended for job readiness and job training and feature culinary arts, organic gardening, holistic health, body movements and expressive arts, and other continuing education elements such as marine and weather studies, animal life and habitat restoration.
We also include instruction in independent life skills, travel training and money skills, videography and website construction so that our students can become empowered to consider themselves conservation leaders, telling online stories and instructing others about the natural world of Southeast Florida
