Audubon Volunteer To Discuss India Trip At Monthly First Friday Luncheon

“International Environmentalism: Stories and Pictures from a Trip to India” is the theme of the presentation Emily Schlick will make at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary’s next First Friday Lunch Bunch.

The program begins at 11 a.m. on Friday.

A year ago, Schlick spent five months volunteering for the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in India, leading programs about environmental sustainability. She served at Sangam, one of five Girl Scout World Centers.

During this time, the Center worked toward environmental sustainability and improving its environmental education.

Sharing photos and stories, Schlick will discuss various Girl Scout initiatives taking place in India and around the world, how people can learn from them and how people can get involved.

A 2011 graduate of Wells College, Emily Schlick has volunteered at Audubon for more than 10 years as a day camp junior counselor, a trail guide, a festival worker and a general laborer.

Following the program, coffee and tea will be provided for a bring-your-own brown bag lunch. The fee for attending is $7 or $5 for Friends of the Nature Center. Reservations are not required.

The Audubon Center and Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, a quarter-mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren.
