Earth Week 2020 – For-Mar Youth Service Project #3 – Eyes on the Forest

Time: 9:30 -11:30am & 12 – 2pm. 

It’s Earth Week and that means it’s time to give back and help make the Earth a better place for everyone!  For-Mar is inviting classrooms and students grade 5th – 12th to join us as we work on 5 different Youth Service Projects, themed around past Earth Day Foundation themes. Each day the service projects will follow a Learn/Work/Teach and Take Action Model.

Day 3’s theme is Eyes on the Forest. Throughout today’s service project, students will: “Learn” – to be a ‘tree-tective’ as they travel For-Mar’s Urban Forestry superhero trail, “Work”- to become part of the Eyes on the Forest citizen science project and identify and remove Invasive plant material, and “Teach and Take Action” – by creating a PSA about caring for trees around topics like not carving trees and being a tree-tecktor (protector).

For 5th – 12th grades, all abilities.

Cost: FREE!

Pre-registration is required by 4/13/20.  Individuals & families can register by calling 810.736.7100 ext 6.  Classrooms and Organized Groups must contact For-Mar staff, Nicole or Courtney, at 810.789.8567 or email nferguson@gcparks.org.  Space is limited, there are only two classroom spaces open for each time frame.
