Presented virtually via Zoom webinar

Join Barefoot Books authors, Stacy Clark and Christy Mihaly, as they discuss climate change, renewable energies, and steps caretakers can take to empower children to take part in protecting our natural resources. A nature lover, environmental geologist, educator and climate journalist, Stacy Clark enjoys distilling science into lively rhymes for young readers. Author Christy Mihaly, also a nature lover, writes for kids because she believes that our best hope for the future is raising young people who love to read and giving them the knowledge and skills to lead. Echoing Discovery Museum’s themes around renewal, connection, and action, this timely webinar will provide an opportunity to learn ways to help support the young activists in your life and take steps towards making a difference!
