On October 24, Olympic Climate Action, Climate Change for Families, and 4-H of WSU Extension Clallam County hosted a Plant-for-the-Planet Academy with elementary and middle-school students. Seven new Climate Ambassadors learned about the climate crisis, the distribution of wealth, population, and pollution around the world, Plant-for-the-Planet’s 3-point plan to solve the climate crisis, and how to become climate leaders, and they planted trees at the Port Angeles Boat Haven. A good time was had by all. Next step: the students would like to form a club, and 4-H has offered to host the club if adult leaders can be found. If you’d like to help lead a club with some wonderful young people, contact Jenny Schmidt at 4-H: email@example.com.
Here are some images from Presidents Day week 2014, when Mike, Zoe, and Stella Foster came to the Olympic Peninsula as climate ambassadors, visiting schools and planting trees and shrubs.
