Students and educators, are you looking for new resources and upcoming opportunities to be environmental champions? Here a few that we wanted to share with you!
Learn how to create a service-learning project that solves waste, stormwater, and sustainability problems at school or in your local community through the Generation Earth Program. The program provides trainings throughout Los Angeles County. Participating teachers will receive free resources and a free bus for a project-related field trip. To sign up, have your students fill out a pre-project survey form, and have the teacher fill out a Transportation Request form relating your field trip to a project. Make sure to send in pre-project surveys and forms at least two weeks before your scheduled field trip. Finally, send in students’ completed post-project surveys within 2 weeks after your field trip. For help choosing a project or field trip location, contact Alyson with any questions.
