Festival for the Columbia Gorge area.....

I am truly inspired by the Columbia Gorge Ecology Institute and NW Parks and Rec, for their commitment to making our area better for everyone, and for providing wonderful opportunities and events for the community and schools to participate in.


I would love to hold an Earth Scouts Festival here in the next few months, not only to promote the group and this wonderful community around the world, but also to provide kids with resources to become the wonderful people they can be.…

Be Your Own Paper Recycling Company!

Did you know that you can make paper yourself? For many years paper was made by hand and therefore was very expensive.  People treated it with great care, and never threw it away. They always saved it after they used it, and made new paper from it. Paper can be made from wood, cotton rags, linen fabric, grass,…

BeadParty to benefit BeadforLife- a fun event that benefits a great organization

Recycling is fine, and fun, art!

I know many of us have experienced finding a stray crayon, broken in pieces, lying around the house. No wrapper, just the crayon. If you're like me, some of you put them in a box or bag, setting them aside for some future art project. Some that are in better condition can be donated or given away, but for those lost little pieces, what to do with them?


Our girls were given a wonderful little device, a Crayola Crayon Maker, yesterday and have made 15 crayons so far! Their…

Recycle old books, CDs and movies

Not sure if I'm the last person in the world to know about this, but I recently stumbled upon where you can trade in old movies, books, games and CDs for other items you want. It's really easy and fun, and a great way to recycle old items that are collecting dust in your house. Might be a fun group way to trade up for Earth Scouts-related books!

What kind of reference materials do you use?

One of the first things I did after I found out about the Earth Scouts was to acquire the book "The Earth Charter In Action: Toward A Sustainable World". It is jam-packed with all kinds of great information and activities.

I also recommend the "Environmental Education Activity Guide, Pre K - 8", another great activity book.

Both books are easy to understand, provide tons of references and have lots of great activities that provide a wide range of stimulation for all ages. Our… Continue
