On Saturday, May 12th, the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians invited the tribal community to participate in their Annual Tribal Earth Day.
The Climate Science Alliance was grateful to be a part of such a wonderful community event. Our staff hosted an interactive booth that engaged community members on the topic of climate change by using our modules on local pollinators and decomposers. We had live insects (Painted Lady Butterflies and Bessbugs) on the table for visitors to interact with as well as a community art activity where youth could sew a satchel and make a commitment to helping the earth. We taught the kids the importance of pollinators in our food web and the threats they face due to climate change. We also gave them ideas for how to help pollinators such as starting a garden at home.
Check out photos from our activities and partnering booth activities as well!
This event was partially funded through the Whale Tail Grant. Thank you!
