Today’s kids are the future of conservation. By supporting educational programs for young boys and girls in our area, you’re inspiring the next generation to care deeply about this land, just like you.
For example, in our annual Sunflower Garden Project (pictured at right), we team up with local teachers to give kids the chance to get creative outside of the classroom and learn about the natural world.
During this project, Bishop Elementary classes come to our office backyard and Native Plant and Pollinator Demonstration Garden multiple times each spring. Our Education Coordinator leads them as they play hands-on games that teach about the life cycle of plants, the important role that pollinators play, and the magic of germination. Kids plant sunflower seeds, monitor their growth, and have fun connecting with nature.
To protect the Eastern Sierra long after we’re gone, we must build a culture of conservation that knows no age limit. It’s never too early – or too late – to discover your love of the natural world, and to understand that it’s up to each and every one of us to protect it.
We’re always looking for volunteers to help with our outdoor education programs. Do you love working with kids and being out in nature?
