Teen Advisory Board

BACT launched its teen advisory board for 8th – 12th graders, Teens4Green, in the Fall of 2016.  The board meets once a month during the school year to discuss conservation topics and create outreach activities.  Additionally, the teen board represents BACT in a variety of BACT events as well as community programs.

Come join our fun group and make a difference in our community.
