Are you between the ages of 18-34? Do you want to serve the environment? Do you enjoy being outdoors? Are you interested in making connections with others? Apply, and join the E3 Summit!

Everybody’s Environment Emerging (E3) Leader Summit participants will expand the common image of environmental stewards. The Summit will provide opportunities in leadership skill building, outdoors skills building, hiking, outdoor recreation and stewardship. Through sharing authentic stories, creating connections with inclusive communities, and public lands education, participants will gain a wider knowledge on how to be an environmental steward.

The Keynote speaker is Daniel White, AKA The Blackalachian, a native of the Shiloh community of Asheville, who has completed a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, the Camino de Santiago in Spain, and Scotland’s TGO challenge, and who now serves as an ambassador to inspire young people of color to spend time in the outdoors.
