TreeCircus will be touring the San Diego for the first time November 9-13, 2015! This high energy group will hold 8 “edu-taining” assemblies for youth at schools throughout San Diego County that all share the same need… trees! Schools along the tour include Silver Strand Elementary in Coronado, Quantum Academy in Escondido, Cottonwood School in Aguanga, and Santa Margarita School in Oceanside.
During their performances, TreeCircus digs into biology, urban forestry, and even careers in arboriculture. They help students understand how their local trees can lower the temperature and raise their spirits. Throughout the program participants will learn all about trees, including their value, why we should plant more of them, and even how to climb trees like the pros. Student participation is central to the show’s success. These assemblies are sponsored by Cal Fire and the US Forest Service – they are provided to the schools at no cost!
- We ask that you provide a youth audience from 50-1000 students. Consider bringing several classes, schools or after-school programs together! Our shows are on a tight schedule, so please have students seated and ready to go at show time.
- Provide a well-lit stage area with microphone and speakers, one 6′ table and six chairs on the stage. Our performers will need access to the stage area one hour before show time.
- Commit to tying our message about trees into your curriculum. For example, students could write short essays or poems about the signfigance of Arbor Day and fill out activity sheets that pertain to the show.
