The Cooley Landing facility

This summer the Girls to Women group attended the Creative Ecology Program at Cooley Landing. Resident artist and teacher, Linda Gass, combines art and science to help encourage critical thinking and conversations about the impact we have on our environment.

The girls participated in land/art activities to observe the changes that have happened in the landscape, used microscopes to see creatures beyond our sight, used art to document what they saw, and were encouraged to think and talk critically about their observations. The girls had thought-provoking, fun experiences! They were encouraged to re-examine their own backyards using the same art and science techniques!

Thank you to the Palo Alto Art Center and Linda Gass for the wonderful photo!
