Environmental Youth Group

 

The Environmental Youth Group (EYG) has started meeting regularly again at the Qagan Tayagungin Tribe Recreation Center during Boys and Girls Club. The Qagan Tayagungin Tribe’s Environmental Assistant, Clarissa Devine, will hold EYG on Wednesday or Friday at 3 PM.  Environmental Youth Group is accommodated by the Qagan Tayagungin Tribe to provide the youth of Sand Point with an opportunity to participate in environmentally friendly activities and to gain knowledge they can share with their peers and parents.

Some of the activities the Environmental Youth Group will participate in will take them off Boys and Girls Club/QTT Community Center Campus. For students to participate in these activities, a release must be signed by their parent. Releases can be picked up at the tribe or downloaded on our website effective until rescinded in writing. Signed releases can be turned into the Tribal office anytime of the week between 8am-5pm.

EYG will have recycling contests four times a year.  Dates of recycling contests are to be determined.  All participants in EYG will be notified when the contest will take place.  While the contest is on-going parents or children can bring in their recyclables to the QTT office.

A number of transpiring activities include; in/outdoor scavenger hunts, coloring/painting activities, trash for cash program, recycling contests, sand art, making slime and much more.

These recycling events will help encourage environmental awareness and behaviors on the importance on recycling reusable items and help keep them out of our community, landfill and oceans.  Recycling these items will help keep our community litter free of these items.  Everyone is a winner for participating in recycling.  Following the recycling contests’, we will applaud them for taking environmental action a with ice-cream or pizza party.

I look forward to working with the youth of our community to help them better understand ways to live a more sustainable life and support a clean, healthy prosperous environment.

Hope to see you there!

We will only be accepting aluminum cans and Type-1 plastics.
