Earth Authors

Offered in collaboration with the Youth Conservation Action Network (YouCAN), the Earth Authors Program (EAP) is a unique one-year mentoring program for children to create children’s books. Middle school students explore the natural world and write storybooks using their real-life experiences. Along the way, they understand crucial threats to the planet such as the climate crisis, and solutions like ecosystem restoration, food security, and planetary health. The students’ expressions such as writings, artwork, and discussions, create a documentation of their exploration for posterity. Using their learnings, each participant writes, illustrates, and publishes a storybook, and brings support for environmental causes.
