April 19, 2012 - Session developed by Faith Duncan (USFS). Presentations by Pamela Garcia (Juneau School District), Clay Good (Juneau School District), Faith Duncan (USFS), and Dave Cleaves (USFS).

Session Abstract: Education and outreach is an essential aspect of coastal temperate rainforest management and conservation. The integration of place-based climate and ecosystem science into primary and secondary education is key to the development of community environmental awareness and understanding. This integration of place-based science is incomplete without cultural ties. This session explores the formation and importance of the youth perception of change in the coastal temperate rainforest, through both traditional and non-traditional teaching strategies. Our session will showcase elementary student visualizations of change, a set of middle school student posters on energy use, and a high school student panel discussion, providing youth with an opportunity to share their understanding of climate, change, and their natural environment. Formal and non-formal educators will present success stories followed by a discussion among those in attendance about strategies to employ in the classroom and at home to develop inquisitive minds. Educational resources including books and curricula will be shared with educators at the conclusion of the session.
