  • 2019 Summer Energy Camp - Session 2

    Energy Camp is led by our team of interns and volunteers with a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) as the curriculum. This event is held at but not sponsored by the United Church of Tallahassee. It is for grades 3-6 and focuses on issues such as impacts from fossil fuel usage and options with renewable energy. Children learn to make a solar oven, fix their bikes, create solar bugs, and more. The camp recognizes and teaches about energy issues beyond electrical consumption; for instance, the camp addresses the ties between energy and food, energy and water, and energy and transportation. The campers also go on multiple field trips such as traveling to local farms to talk about the importance and sustainability of growing their own food. Children are given hands-on experience in urban planning as we look at various forms of alternative transportation, and the planning required for cities to support them. Participants will engage in hands-on, experimental activities related to renewable energy solutions, depletion of fossil fuels, and climate change. Activities include:...

  • Take a photo to ban fracking

    • Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 05:00 PM – April 09, 2020

    The Florida House and Senate have continued to push incomplete fracking ban bills that leave open loopholes to frack via matrix acidizing. Governor DeSantis is key to amending these bills (HB 7029 and SB 7064) and ensuring the state passes a bill this session that bans ALL forms of fracking, including matrix acidizing. Gov DeSantis is active on Twitter and Facebook. So we need to send him a message loud and clear on social media that Floridians are holding him accountable to ensuring a full fracking ban passes this session.

    You can help by taking a photo petition! Do this by making a sign that says:

    “I want Governor DeSantis to ban ALL fracking, including matrix acidizing.” (See example photo in the discussion)

    Then take a photo of yourself with the sign and post it on Facebook and tag Governor DeSantis. If you’re on Twitter, post it there too and tag @RonDeSantisFL and @GovRonDeSantis. See the photo in the discussion for an example!
