This week marked another successful Earth Day event at the Hopland Band of Pomo Indians‘ Kids in the Creek event. The weather was bright and sunny, which set the stage for a successful afternoon. The two-hour event featured different tables and displays from the area tribes all focusing on pollution and wetland health in general. Some of the presentations included invasive species outreach, water testing, ecoscape and non-point source pollution, stream assessments, insect displays and so much more. With plenty kids in attendance, there were all sorts of participants ready to learn.
Our activity focused on conserving water by providing tips to help cut down on your use of this valuable resource. The participants created their own special tissue paper world with glue and wax paper. We wanted the youth to create the world the way they see it. Participation was excellent as the youth glued and attached tissue paper to the wax pieces to create a cool stained-glass effect when completed. The youth had a blast as they told us why they believe water conservation was important for the future.
