Catch Us for Teen Tuesday: Exploring Land Use and Climate Change

We shared tree-sources for schoolkids earlier this month, and we’re excited to offer a live activity for the environmentally conscious teen in your life. Tomorrow our very own Director of Education Melinda and Youth Programs Coordinator Kelsey are joining DC teens and ecologist Dr. Kimberly Komatsu via webinar to explore how our landscapes are being transformed by humans.  

They’ll spend some time talking about the connections between climate change, urban forestry, and environmental justice and help folks apply what they’ve learned in their work to make positive change in your own community, no matter where you live! 

Also, it’s free! Register for Teen Tuesday: Exploring Land Use and Climate Change here. 

This Teen Tuesday program is part of the Teen Earth Optimism video webinars, offered by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. Each program is 45 minutes long and features a group conversation between a museum educator and multiple guests, including Smithsonian scientists, members of DC community organizations, and teenagers sharing their perspectives on issues surrounding climate change and how everyone can contribute to climate solutions.
