RYSE UP! – report from RAN’s teen action camp

posted by Rainforest Action Network

The Mendoza family, along with the snakes, birds, bears, frogs, fish and ancient oak trees shared their home with our RYSE crew in the vast wilderness of the Mendocino National forest for six days. We swam, hiked, shared stories, shared struggles, made masks, danced, skipped rocks and stickered palm oil products. We looked climate change straight in the eyes and discussed multiple strategies for transforming our communities so that we will have a world to thrive in as we age. There is so much to say, but I’ll let the participants share the rest. Keep a look-out for the new RYSE blog coming soon with more stories from camp. In the meantime, check out the rest of the pictures.
