Ecological literacy is the ability to understand the natural systems that make life on earth possible. To be ecoliterate means understanding the principles of organization of ecological communities and using those principles for creating sustainable human communities. Each day people make decisions that affect the environment, whether they are getting ready to go to work, preparing dinner, or buying products for the house or garden. It’s imperative that the public learn and understand how their actions and lifestyle intersect with the environment.
Please join our Facebook Group and share your observations there. If you don't 'do' social media, don't despair! There are other ways to share.
Draw in your nature journal, take a photo, and email to us.
Join the weekly zoom calls with experts and 'show & tell' your observations with the group.
Hashtag your observations with #kittitasnaturechallenge on whatever social media you choose. If you are old school, take photos with your film camera and bring them to a gathering that we hope to have in person at the end of the challenge!
What Is the Challenge?
KEEN and our friends at the Kittitas County Field & Stream Club are working together to challenge our community to find, track, name, identify, journal, and record all the nature they can find during
April and May 2021!
Each week has a new theme and challenge and prizes will be awarded each week!
Weekly online check-ins with experts will be available to all participants for live Q&A.
If you prefer to draw/illustrate or otherwise record your observations on paper, put together a journal and go for it! You can share your observations and drawings on our Facebook group page or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
