Amtchat Edwards: Hometown Hero


hh84_edwards.jpg“Amtchat Edwards, outreach and education coordinator at the Student Conservation Association (SCA), is the focus of a month-long “WETA Hometown Heroes” profile airing in May on WETA TV 26. WETA selected Edwards for his commitment to inform youth about environmental conservation through educational programs in the District.

“Edwards, a native of Washington, D.C., spends his time teaching area youth on the environment and what they can do to make a difference. Edwards’ works supports the SCA’s mission to engage the youth in hands-on service to the environment, building the next generation of conservation leaders. His programs include information on water conservation, the water cycle, plant identification, erosion control, predator/prey relationships, the Anacostia River and local birds.” – full profile and video on
