La Jolla GENERATIONS Program Visits the San Diego Botanic Garden for a Summer Climate Kids-Tribes Fi

The Climate Science Alliance kicked off our Summer Climate Kids-Tribes field trips on July 18, 2018 at the San Diego Botanic Garden to learn about climate change and watershed conservation. The La Jolla GENERATIONS Program at the La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians partnered with the Alliance, sending students on a coastal field trip for the second year in a row!

Last year, Climate Kids-Tribes field trips sent students to the Batiquitos Lagoon and led a nature journal project. At the field trip this year students visited the beautiful gardens at San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas, California. SDBG staff taught about climate change by using the heat-trapping blanket demonstration and touched on watersheds, water scarcity and other impacts due to climate change. Students thought about impacts to their local river ways and creeks and brainstormed how they can help by playing a solutions charades game!

The field trip concluded with an interactive tour through the gardens and included several activities and things to touch along the way. Staff pointed out natural San Diego landscapes and traditional plant in their garden exhibits.
