Blue Chalk worked with The Oregon School Boards Association (OSBA) to tell the story of one coastal Oregon school district's successful efforts to create a natural resources program for its students.
Tillamook County’s economy has always been rooted in its natural resources so it was only natural for its school district to develop an educational program to provide students with the opportunity to understand the nature that surrounds them. The program's mission is to create students whose understanding of environmental science can help them become responsible and global-minded citizens.
Blue Chalk spent time with many of the students involved in this program and had the chance to partake in some great activities in Oregon’s beautiful forests, wetlands and rivers.
This is the third of five short films created for OSBA's "The Promise of Oregon" 2016 campaign. These videos are designed to encourage schools and the public to “dream bigger” about what is possible for Oregon’s schools.
