Sustainability Youth Camp
Monday, July 20, 2009 - 9:00am to Friday, July 24, 2009 - 5:00pm

This week-long enrichment camp is designed to help youth experience the concept "sustainability" when put into action. For ages 12-16.  

The week begins with a trip to canoe the Columbia Slough in order to understand a local ecosystem. During the week we'll explore climate change, build a micro-hydro generator, investigate sustainable food products, calculate ecological footprints, see how local businesses reduce their environmental impacts. We'll also give back to our community by helping out on a local farm or removing invasive species from the Columbia Slough.

Where: Urban Center at 506 SW Mill St at PSU
