Keeping up with class 12        

  Introducing KELP Class 12


KELP is proud to announce the 16 new students accepted into the Class of 2012! They submitted applications, reference letters, and described their desire to learn about their roles in the Kansas environment. These students represent a variety of perspectives throughout the state of Kansas, such as the Kansas Farmer’s Union, Midwest Energy, and college students. We are excited to begin this year’s program and look forward to meeting our newest Kansas Environmental leaders!

The KELP experience consists of five sessions between two and three days long. Each session is diversified with motivational speakers and hands-on field trips and environmental projects. The first session of the 2012 KELP class began February 8th. Our next sessions will be March 7-9, May 9-11, July 11-13, and October 24-25, with corresponding webinars in between each session.
