Welcome back, campers! Here we are on our final week of Kids’ Camp. We hope you have enjoyed learning about the wildness that is just outside your door as you have become more independent, more knowledgeable, and more enthusiastic explorers.
This week we want to focus on the health of our planet, which desperately needs our help! Climate change is negatively impacting our ecosystem and our society, and we need to act quickly to help protect wildlife and human habitats from rising temperatures and extreme weather events. The rivers and streams we love (and the fish that live in them!) depend on our taking action. Learn more about what climate change is, why it matters, and how humans can help from NASA.
The great news is that we can help! We all have a voice, and lots of great ideas, and now is the time to rally for change at the household, community, and global levels. This week our activities will include a few of the many ways that we can help protect the rivers and spaces we love from the impacts of global warming.
