Play experiential games to understand how our world needs to change, learn to plant a tree with Seattle Parks naturalists, get a photo with local leaders, rehearse the slideshow and end the day giving the slideshow to invited guests.
Students, age 8 – 14, who care about our future and who want to plant a truly tree-mendous transformation of our planet, please attend this one-day workshop on May 24th to send a powerful signal against the climate crisis.
