Join Us for a Free Seminar
Saturday, April 27th @ 10:30 a.m.
Location: 627 Route 1, York, Maine (in the Eldredge Building)
Our speaker – Will Jones – is a senior at Kennebunk High School and passionate about protecting our whales and at the same time, our environment.
When Will was six years old he went on his first whale watch. He had broken his arm and his mother wanted to distract him and help him to forget that he couldn’t participate in his usual activities.
It was on this whale watch that he saw his first whale only 10’ away – just sitting in the water. Will looked right into the whale’s eye, it looked right back at him and the two formed a life-long connection. From that moment Will has been passionate about informing and educating young and old about what litter does to the whales and our environment.
Will was named a junior intern for Blue Ocean Society for Maine Conservation in Portsmouth at just eight years old. He has been featured as a “Kid in Action” by the American Cetacean Society, and was awarded an International Eco Hero Award by ‘Action for Nature’ in San Francisco California in 2011. He has been an apprentice at the Landing School in Arundel and a volunteer with the Special Surfer Program in Kennebunk. He is also an avid surfer.
Will continues to take his message to camps, schools and libraries. Recently, he has been on a mission to stop balloon releases and educate the public about their harm to the environment.
We invite you to join in to listen to Will’s passionate message about how we all can work to save our whales and our environment.
Light refreshments will be served.
