2015 Summer Happenings at HAREC

Apr 6, 2015

4-H Youth Development Program staff at HAREC will collaborate with the City of Ventura Environmental Sustainability Division and the Ventura Water Department to conduct a week-long 4-H Sustainable You! Summer Camp at the Center. Trained environmental educators from the City of Ventura will deliver the program June 22-26. Youth will explore what it means to be sustainable through fun activities based around five major themes: land, water, food, air, and energy. Combining educational resources with the city will enhance the camp, ensure success and most of all bump up the fun factor for youth participants ages 9-12. Registration is now open.

John Fischer, Life Lab Director of Programs, UC Santa Cruz will be the featured trainer on July 17 for a Next Generation Science in the Garden Educator Workshop at HAREC. Using activities from the award-winning Life Lab Science curriculum, participants will learn how to lead engaging, hands-on science lessons outdoors, link garden activities to Next Generation Science Standards, use garden-based science lessons to reinforce Common Core Math and English Language Arts, and much more. Teachers, administrators and garden educators are encouraged to attend. Optional education credit from the University of the Pacific will be available. Registration is now open.
