Earthy Conversations


What Is Earthy Conversations?

Earthy Conversations is a youth-led, county-wide intergenerational dialogue that is exploring our most powerful experiences in nature and extraordinary learning. The learnings from this initiative will significantly inform, inspire and shape the future utilization and development of Chambers Creek Properties as a life-changing environmental learning experience and catalyst for social change, while providing the vision for building an Environmental Learning Center at the Properties.

At 932 acres, Chambers Creek Properties serves as an extraordinary opportunity to pioneer environmental reclamation, education and stewardship on one of the largest urban environmental living classrooms in the Puget Sound bioregion.

Earthy Conversations is a joint project of Chambers Creek Foundation and Pierce County, and a collaborative effort involving nearly twenty Pierce County schools, University of Washington-Tacoma, local environmental organizations, and other youth and adult civic organizations.

Earthy Conversations is designed to engage and ignite the individual and collective imagination of our community, expand thinking about what is possible, build powerful relationships between generations and catalyze inspired action. Further, Earthy Conversations provides noteworthy leadership opportunities and skills development for youth, who will have the opportunity to significantly impact the future they will inherit.
