What is Roots & Shoots?

What is Roots & Shoots?

Roots creep underground everywhere and make a firm foundation. Shoots seem very weak, but to reach the light, they can break open brick walls. Imagine that the brick walls are all the problems we have inflicted on our planet. Hundreds of thousands of roots & shoots, hundreds of thousands of young people around the world, can break through these walls. We CAN change the world.

- Dr. Jane

The Roots & Shoots program is about making positive change happen—for our communities, for animals and for the environment. With tens of thousands of young people in almost 100 countries, the Roots & Shoots network connects youth of all ages who share a desire to create a better world. Young people identify problems in their communities and take action. Through service projects, youth-led campaigns and an interactive website, Roots & Shoots members are making a difference across the globe.

Wilderness Survival Skills at Siskin Ecological Adventures

Wilderness Survival Skills 
"Each year our regional papers report on the all too often tragic stories of lost hunters, hikers, and skiers. In this class, students work together in small teams to construct effective, seasonally appropriate survival shelters, build one-match fires, and put other practical survival knowledge and skills into action."
