Discover After School (Age: Middle Schoolers)

September 15 @ 3:15 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

September 15 from 3:15 – 5:30 pm

Discover After School is an after-school program engaging middle school students in community activities that encourage connecting with nature through ecological investigations. The activities – such as place-based art projects, maker spaces, journaling time, and photography – help youth express their own stories. The program provides a safe, informal, and inclusive after-school space for middle schoolers to spend time outdoors and develop a closer relationship with nature. DAS participants may get dirt and/or paint on their clothes; please plan accordingly. Sign up to discover your own stories and nature’s stories from new perspectives! All supplies included. 

Cost: Free

Off-Site: Each DAS meeting starts at the La Grande Middle School picnic tables; two instructors and the middle schoolers then walk to Pete’s Pond. The program also includes a field trip to a different location during one of the six sessions. The field trip location may be subject to change due to inclement weather and/or accessibility needs of the group.  Pete’s Pond, a Blue Mountains Conservancy property, is on Miller Avenue, one mile south of La Grande Middle School. 

 

Discover After School is a collaboration between Art Center East and La Grande Parks and Recreation. The following businesses and organizations support Discover After School by donating their time and materials: Naknuwithlama Tiichamna – Caretakers of the Land, Cook Memorial Library, Greater Oregon STEM Hub, Grande Ronde Model Watershed, and Blue Mountains Conservancy.
