2016 California Arbor Week Tour

TreeCircus will be touring the state once again in celebration of California Arbor Week from Feb 29 – March 11, 2016.  Kicking off in Southern California, this high energy group will hold about 20 “edu-taining” assemblies for youth at schools throughout the state that all share the same need… trees!

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 schools at no cost!

School requirements:

  • 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 significance of Arbor Day and fill out activity sheets that pertain to the show.
