Mt. Hood Plant for the Planet Academy

Sunday, September 04, 2016, 08:45am - 02:00pm
Contact; 503-331-0374

9am - 2:00pm (snack and lunch provided)

Please arrive by 8:45.

Location: Bark's Basecamp in the Mt. Hood Forest, Exact location to be announced

At the Academy, students learn to inspire Climate Change efforts, teaching one another about Climate Change through making presentations, planting trees, and participating in other activities as Ambassadors for Climate Justice. They learn the science of Climate Change, how to give a Climate presentation, tree planting, and and how they can engage their communities and make a difference for their future.

FREE to students in grades 4th through 12th or equivalent. Includes meals, t-shirt and the book "Tree By Tree".

At 1:00pm, parents will return for a student-led Climate presentation and celebrate students' graduation as new Ambassadors for Climate Justice. To learn more, watch "Now We Children Save the World" on YouTube:

The day centers on learning about Climate Change from other students through a slide presentation and discussions, working on the ability to speak with knowledge and authority about Climate Change, and practicing sharing that presentation with other students and adults. We will be using a game and brainstorming to enable students to take action. We may be asking students to gather in advance of the Academy in the Portland area to learn to plant a tree since it will not be possible at the time of the Basecamp Academy. Learning how to present, plant trees, and encourage others to act on Climate Change are central to the Academy experience.

Please note: All children attending this Academy must be accompanied a parent or guardian. Parents, please sign up as volunteers for the Academy at the volunteer link below. You can come for the day, come the night before and camp with us (!), or join Basecamp for days.
