Project Wild America
PWA Youth Ambassadors-Exploring & Reporting on the Environment around Jamestown, NY.
In the spirit of Roger Tory Peterson, the Project Wild America (PWA) Youth Ambassadors spend each week of the summer studying nature in and around Jamestown. On Saturdays, they report back to the community on WJTN's Saturday Breakfast Party about what they have observed that week. Project Wild America is led by Elyce Henshaw, Conservation Technician at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute.
