Description

BICO is a Sierra Club outreach program opportunities for young students from the city and adults to explore, enjoy and protect the natural world. BICO encourages both its volunteer members and students to work together and plan fun trips. Our goal is to create a strong bond between the students and our natural world, helping them to become leaders in their schools. Each team is self-directed and chooses its own outings, so your voice will mean a lot.

BICO partners with four Baltimore organizations: Southwest Baltimore Charter School, Paul's Place, Mi Espacio and Digital Harbor High School in south Baltimore, At this point in time we are reviving a partnership with College Gardens Community Center in southwest Baltimore. BICO volunteers provide one outing per month to youngsters at each of these agencies.

BICO provides food on the outings and gear/transportation for the trip but most importantly volunteers like YOU to safely facilitate the outing.

Optionally, you can become a certified outing leader for BICO through the Sierra Club, which ensures that our programming can continue.
