Habitats Environmental Project
The Habitats Environmental Project is a multi-part project, primarily for third to fifth grade students in Oregon. The project includes a classroom program and an interactive Habitats Show.
The students will learn about the effects of pollution on our environment, specifically addressing Pacific Northwest wildlife and their habitats.
Through education about recycling, reusing, and reclaiming, the students are offered methods in which to reduce their footprint on the environment.
The classroom program includes presentations, discussions, and craft project time using discarded and found items collected by students, community volunteers, and project organizers from Pacific Northwest habitats, homes, schools, and neighborhoods.
The project culminates in an interactive Habitats Show where the craft projects created in the classrooms are used as props in the show and may also be used by the student audience while viewing the show, there will also be shows open to the public.

We’re looking for help in the following areas and many more to come as the project moves along!
1) We need sponsors, artists, students/teachers, performers, musicians, grant writers, team leaders, etc.
If you’re interested in participating in this project and you have a skill you’d like to share or explore, please join us! We’d love to have you as part of our project! This project is intended to serve as an incubator for community members to learn, share, explore, create, and be involved in a good cause. Get inspired with us!
2) Collect trash from nature and send it to us – This one is the biggest and most involved requests, but it is absolutely the most important!
Next time you go out into any Pacific Northwest natural area (forest, beach, ocean, mountains, desert, etc.) take a small sack with you and collect trash for us to use in our show!
3) Check out our household items needed and call-outs for materials – You might have something lying around your house that we need! Visit our webpage for material collection lists.
Tell everyone you know about this project and get involved yourself!
