Carolyn Schuyler is the founder of Wildrock, an organization that hopes to promote nature play for health with the idea that when children play in nature they become future stewards. After stepping aside as the director, Carolyn was called to take more action to protect our environment. “The problems are so big that Wild Virginia really does need volunteers to be able to have the expansive impact that the mission calls for.” Carolyn says we all need to be stepping up, it can't just be people working for a nonprofit. It's got to be all of us understanding what we can do as citizens.
She is a recent graduate of the Clean Water Advocates Program, an education program to train a small group of dedicated volunteers (“Advocates”) to support Wild Virginia’s efforts to protect Virginia’s water quality.
“Clean water is essential to the whole ecosystem. If you don't have clean water, of course, it affects all the life that's associated with that water.”
