LCBP Teams with ECO AmeriCorps to Build Lake Champlain Summer Camp Programs
Corey Aydlett, a Vermont ECO AmeriCorps member, is serving with the Lake Champlain Basin Program through August 2018. His primary task as an LCBP Education and Outreach Assistant is to create a series of lake-related student activities to be incorporated into summer camp programs. “I’m committed to creating opportunities in environmental education for youth in the LCBP community and will also be dedicating time for public outreach and special events hosted by LCBP and partner organizations,” said Aydlett. His passion for the environment and education led him to work with youth as a camp specialist for the Oak City Adventures Program in Raleigh, NC last summer. He and his 23 fellow Vermont ECO AmeriCorps members are each serving 1,700 hours with their respective organizations.
Aydlett is from Raleigh, NC and received his B.S. in Environmental Technology and Management with a minor in Outdoor Leadership from NC State University. During his undergraduate career, Aydlett joined the national service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, volunteering with nonprofit organizations such as Habitat For Humanity, Together We Can, Inc., and Peacework in efforts to learn about social and environmental issues. He gained research and public outreach experience with the Sea Grant Program for the University of Guam on watershed conservation. Aydlett now lives in Burlington, VT with several other ECO AmeriCorps members.
