Eco-Action is an interactive, educational club that empowers middle school students and teachers to be good global citizens working to ensure adequate resources for a clean and healthy environment through making changes at their respective schools.
What is this program? Clubs meet throughout the school year to explore green service learning projects including waste stream reduction, reuse, recycling, composting, energy and water conservation, water quality, restoration and pollution prevention.
How does this program work? During weekly club meetings students work together to develop their knowledge, create a sense of civic responsibility, foster a school environment that emphasizes sustainability while practicing data, monitoring and other important language arts, math and science skills. Club members create outreach messages to educate and involve the whole school community in sustainability initiatives
Who can participate in this program? 6th, 7th and 8th graders.
Where is this program offered? Eco-Action Clubs are offered to middle school students at North Tahoe School, Alder Creek Middle School and Sierra Expeditionary Learning School.
