2012 Year End Event – UW Botanic Gardens
Invest in Youth is pleased to announce the 2012 year-end event, which will be held on May 30th and 31st at the University of Washington Botanic Gardens. During the event, students and tutors will attend the Native Plants and People class, which explores the relationship between people and the environment around them. Using the Pacific Northwest as an example, students will learn about how people everywhere depend upon the land for survival and how human cultures are shaped by their ecosystems.
Field trips will be held on the following dates:
- Wednesday, May 30th – Daniel Bagley and Thurgood Marshall students & tutors
- Thursday, May 31st – Beacon Hill and Bailey Gatzert students & tutors
Both gatherings will be at the UW Botanic Gardens at the Arboretum from 11:00-1:30. Box lunches will be provided for all registered tutors and students and we plan to eat from 11:00-11:45. The Native Plants and People class will run from 12:00-1:30pm.
IIY will bus students from schools. Tutors are welcome to join students on the bus or can meet the group at the Arboretum at 11:00. An evite with confirmation information will go out in early May, in the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact Meredith Barrett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
