Each year, the Southern Ute Environmental Programs Division hosts the Environmental Leadership and Knowledge Seminar (E.L.K.S). The seminar was open to all local Native American youth between the ages of nine and twelve years old. Each student was given the opportunity to learn about environmental issues and they created their own environmental awareness through hands on demonstrations and participated in field trips to local rivers and ponds. The outdoor youth program began on Tuesday, June 11 and ended Wednesday, June 12.
