On October 9th, the Climate Science Alliance joined the celebrations for Indigenous Peoples’ Day hosted by the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Our booth engaged attendees in coloring and matching games from our Climate Kids program, sharing ways we can protect local wildlife.
The Climate Science Alliance had an incredible time celebrating Indigenous Peoples’ Day at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, hosted by the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians. The day was full of stories, singing, and celebrating the Indigenous community. We are so thankful to have been a part of it!
At the Climate Science Alliance booth we talked with attendees about what we can do to protect our local wildlife. These conversations were facilitated by the gorgeous coloring pages from our Colors of Conservation Coloring Book, designed by Audrey Carver. The coloring book features ten different local species (check them out, here!). Attendees chose the animal that they wanted to color and learn more about. On the back of every coloring page is information about that animal and how we can protect them.
In addition to the coloring pages, our booth had an interactive 10 Things You Can Do to Give Wildlife a Break matching game. Participants flexed their memory skills while learning about different strategies to protect our local wildlife. The matching cards included tips like, ‘Stay on trails’, ‘keep an eye on pets’ and ‘take only pictures’. Plus, if they made a match they earned a sticker!
Our team had a wonderful day hanging out at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, interacting with the many booths and exhibitors and sipping on some refreshing prickly pear lemonade.
Thank you to the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians for hosting us!
