June Kid's Night at Bark

Date: 
Friday, June 17, 2016 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Protecting Our Water

This month we will hear from Dae Dahlquist, local kid activist and educator, about the importance of protecting water. Both in the forest and in the city, water is negatively impacted by road building, runoff, and pollution. The degradation of water harms native fish and wildlife as well as people who rely on the forest to provide clean drinking water. Kids will get a chance to learn how to protect water in the forest and hear about opportunities here in Portland to take action for clean rivers and streams!

We want to set aside some time and space for kids to play, learn about the environment, and organize and work on issues that matter to them.

This will be a monthly event, hosted by some of our youngest Barkers! There will be games and activities designed by kids and each month we will watch a kid's environmental movie.

There are some very interesting opportunities for kid's to participate in environmental advocacy. While this is mostly just a fun night for now, we hope to develop into a productive environmental action group focused on the young voices. We hope parents will talk to kids about environmental activism on the way to Kid's Night.

Since it is around dinner time, we encourage all parents to bring a dish to share or to have dinner before coming. We will have some basic snacks on hand.

This is for kids of ALL AGES!
