Youth Summit 2024

Countdown to Youth Summit 2024


Virtual Activities Leading up to Youth Summit


Window Phenology

Spring represents new beginnings. Transitioning from winter to spring marks a period of renewal--from gray to green landscapes, longer daylight, and wet snowfalls or rain. Nature also begins to awaken, with buds blossoming into vibrant colorful flowers and trees and lawns regaining their green garb, and bird songs filling the air. Embrace the spring season and its energy by putting your student’s observation skills to work by recording signs of spring through a window over the course of five days. After the five days, allow students to share their observations with the class, someone or to a group.



Create a virtual Poe-tree or poetry-tree! To contribute, participants can write a poem of any kind about their favorite part of the St. Croix Riverway or any part of nature that is special to them.
