The Efficacy of Different Erosion Prevention Methods
Because of the harmful environmental impacts that erosion can have, including the destruction of natural habitats, the removal of vegetation, the transport of eroded soil into bodies of water, it is crucial to understand which erosion prevention method would work best in a certain location based on its geographical characteristics. Before deciding on which erosion prevention method would be best for a certain site, it is imperative to understand the qualities of the erosion site. These qualities include the environment of the surrounding area, soil type of the site, the climate of the site location, and the topography of the location.
Youth Climate Action Team Inc.
The Youth Climate Action Team Inc. is a youth-led grassroots movement organizing initiatives for intersectional climate justice. We recently set up a Powerhouse Event, where residents from the DMV area could call and email elected officials to take action on postal service protection, environmental racism, and racial justice. Previously, we also set up a successful National Townhall event, featuring speakers Inger Andersen, Sophia Kianni, Angel Nwadibia, Zamir Ticknor, and Tallulah Costa. Currently we are creating a Climate Extracurricular Education program where around 40 volunteers from all over the nation implement environmental education programs in middle schools, elementary schools, etc.
