How it all began...

Sylvia Medina is someone who is passionate about the environment and the animals that live in this world.  As a youngster she loved to hike and enjoy the wilderness and especially loved animals. She took this passion and dedicated herself to becoming an Environmental Engineer where she could help make a difference.

Another passion Sylvia found was children!  When her twins were born she knew she wanted to instill in them the passion of being steward of our environment. So when Sylvia's twins were infants - she found herself watching television shows for kids.  This made her realize that there were few programs about environmental stewardship and endangered species preservation for children. So one early morning - about 1:30 am - while rocking her baby girl to sleep she came up with the idea of creating stories and products that teach children about the environment and the world around them. So the Green Kids Club was created.    

Sylvia M. Medina

Sylvia is the president, primary author, and creative director of the Green Kids Club. She has spent her career focused on environmental issues and helping to preserve animal welfare.

When she had twins, she became aware that she truly wanted her children to grow up with an environmental conscience and to understand the basics of environmental stewardship. With this in mind, she developed the Green Kids Club concept, which would help her children, as well as other children around the world, learn early environmental habits that they could share with others.


Joy Eagle has always been drawing. As a child, she found that she could improve her grades if she included pictures. She was in the Argonne/INL drafting group for nearly 30 years, starting as a draftsman and advancing to drafting manager. Upon retiring, she returned to fine art with the Art Museum of Eastern Idaho. 

Joy finds her 4 children and 5 grand kids to be amazing and wishes they lived closer to Idaho Falls. She led her children's school to second place in an Idaho recycling competition when she was PTO president. 

She is an active member of the Eastern Idaho Chapter of the VMCCA, an old car club. One of the yearly activities for the club is to clean up the roadside at Market Lake. 

Joy recycles, winterizes her home to save energy, and constantly watches for ways to improve her environment.
