Connecticut SWEP, Inc., acting as a conduit for the dispersal of funds belonging to the Connecticut Groundwater Association, recently gave a donation to the Connecticut Envirothon on behalf of CGA.
The Connecticut Groundwater Association was a precursor to the Environmental Professionals Organization of Connecticut. The founder and champion of the CGA, Dennis Waslenchuk, recently passed away. Dennis and the CGA were also good friends and supporters of the Connecticut SWEP chapter over the years.
The mission of CT Envirothon is to promote environmental awareness, knowledge, and active personal stewardship among high school students through educational workshops and team competition. Several attendees of the recent SWEP lunch program had participated in the CT Envirothon while in high school! Their website is http://www.ctenvirothon.org
