Language in the forest
Canyon, British Columbia
Surrounding our ‘school forest tipi classroom’ (1 acre) we would plant a variety of Indigenous plants/bushes/trees. We would label each with their Ktunaxa name & traditional use using a water proof sign on a metal stake at the plant’s base. We would partner with our Lower Kootenay Band – Ktunaxa.
Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots
Do great things in your community.
Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in nearly 100 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
