[Click to read about Wetlands book] This past summer there was a 2 week Primary School Environmental Camp called CAMP BE AWARE. The Day Camp was held from 12-23 July, 1999. A total of 42 children were involved in the Camp with 1 teacher from each school acting as a Camp Counselor.

We saw Anguilla's environment as we never saw it before. We went spelunking, glass bottom boat sightseeing, horseback riding through the Bush, as well as, taking trips to the Agriculture Dept, the Salt Ponds, the water wells, Green Cuisine lettuce plant, Cap Juluca's nature trail and the Rocky Hill Pig and Poultry Farms.

All participants had a blast. From the outset the children knew that the six Campers from each of Anguilla's Primary Schools would have to go back to their schools and begin an environmental club by 1 October, 1999.

West End School was the first to start their BE AWARE Environmental Club the first day of school. Out of 76 children they have close to 40 members. Since then the other schools have pledged to have their Clubs organized by 1 October.

West End has cleaned up their School grounds and have kept them clean. They have also sent 6 huge garbage bags of glass to the Environmental Health Dept. for their Pilot Project for Recycling Glass.

Every Club will elect a group of officers. The officers will be chosen from the children who were enrolled in CAMP BE AWARE. Each Club will meet one day every week. Other children, community persons, businesses, parents, and visitors are welcome to join our Clubs. The dues are EC$1.00, once a month. If you are not able to attend any of the Club meetings and you would like more information you can E MAIL the BE AWARE ENVIRONMENTAL CLUB at egelm@anguillanet.com. Eventually, a newsletter will be printed with information about all of the Clubs.

The dues will go toward the purchase of gloves for picking up debris, garbage bags, copy paper to use for their newsletters when they get started, and for field trips so all of the children of Anguilla will become Environmentalists. When these young children grow to be Anguilla's future Anguilla will be clean and environmentally sound.

The Environmental Health Department has already pledged garbage bins to all of the Clubs for glass recycling. They are also interested in assisting with Club activities. All of the Clubs' members hope that more people follow their example and JOIN UP!
