Environmental Volunteering of Senior Citizens | All Swell?
Closing out 2022 on ASPN!
In an ageing society, Kyra is wondering why there are not more senior citizens involved in environmental volunteering. She is sitting down with three representatives from environmental organizations from where she lives on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Scott Babinowich from the National Park Service, Sara Hallas from the North Carolina Coastal Federation and Taylor McConnell with the Aquarium on Roanoke Island. She also talks to seniors at the senior center and uncovers a few reasons why people would or would not volunteer. Bottom line: everyone can volunteer, no matter their age or how much time they have on their hands - everything is beneficial: to you, society, environmental organizations and most importantly our planet.
