Educators are welcome to join us for an hands-on exploration of ecology concepts that can be used for engaging environmental youth programs.

What happens if you leave a pile of leaves or logs to rot in your yard? What happens if you rake them up? The Eco Tower is a teaching tool that asks young people to explore the questions of human activities and the environment. Modeled after the game, Jenga, youth pull a game piece from the Eco Tower that poses a question of ecosystem resilience and builds youth critical thinking around topics of soil systems, native plants and agriculture cultivation, insect and other animal organisms, fresh and maritime waters. Easily integrated into existing programs, this fun, interactive workshop is just in time for spring and summer youth programs!

Bring your own lunch, dress for outdoor adventures and activities and be ready for fun!

Registration is free, sign up via Eventbrite: April 21st, 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the JC Raulston Arboretum’s Raleigh
