Take a moment and learn about Earthbound.
Earthbound is a program that takes GU student volunteers to local middle and elementary
schools to run after school activities that are fun and environmentally educational.
Sponsored by CCASL, we focus on schools with the highest rates of free and reduced lunch
to ensure that a lack of economic privilege will not lead to lack of
environmental awareness and appreciation. We all have a right to a clean environment!
Children that get outside are healthier and happier. Also, children who grow up without
exposure to the natural world are far less likely to preserve it as adults. Help us combat
nature deficit disorder and environmental generational amnesia!
