INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. and#8212; The 13th Annual Children's Environmental Science Day held on Saturday, Aug. 11, was a huge success with more than 300 visitors on this extra hot and sunny day.
UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center organizes this annual event on the second Saturday of August each year at the Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences building on the campus of Sierra Nevada College. The event provides an opportunity for both local and visiting families to learn about Lake Tahoe's unique environment and join local scientists, agencies and organizations to learn more about environmental science.
We would like to give a special thank you to Susie Scoops of Incline Village for providing free ice cream for all of the participants at Children's Environmental Science. Attendees are given a and#8220;passportand#8221; and map of the more than 40 hands-on science activities and once they have completed at least ten activities they can redeem their passport for a free ice cream.
We would also like to thank the following local restaurants: T's Rotisserie, Austin's, Crosby's, and Jason's; which donated food for the volunteer lunch. And, of course, thanks to all of the agencies, organizations and volunteers that made this day of education possible!
