Our Vineyard Elementary Oak Ambassadors in training had some special visitors yesterday. They were over the moon to meet Alice, a Great Horned Owl, and Pip, an American Kestrel.
We love our partnership with Pacific Wildlife Care and working with them to enrich the programming we deliver to youth throughout San Luis Obispo County. Please give them a follow, and if you can, support the work they do to Rescue, Rehabilitate & Educate.
All ages are invited to submit 1-2 nature-inspired lines to a collective poem about how nature has been a teacher to you! 🌳🦨🍄🐿🌿 Exciting Announcement! 🌿 As we prepare to celebrate National Poetry Month in April, we at Ten Strands are thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity for all nature enthusiasts!
Whether you are a writer with a passion for poetry or simply someone eager to engage in a community experience, we invite you to join us! 🎨💭 We welcome submissions from any language and invite individuals of all ages to contribute. Teachers are also encouraged to submit lines on behalf of their classes.
Last week was the beginning of our 10 weeks of in-school training for the 2024 cohort of Oak Ambassadors. These 4th grade students are learning all about how to be a safe, fun, and informative nature guide for their peers and community. We are so excited to have 39 Oak Ambassadors in training this spring at our 3 public elementary schools. Along with in class training, they will get opportunities to shadow last years cohort, now 5th graders, as they deliver educational hikes. Keep your eyes open for public Oak Ambassador-led hikes this spring at the Pismo Preserve and Santa Margarita Ranch.
