Central Park Gardens was delighted to partner with Tuleyome/Nature’s Theater for a presentation of The Search for King Carbon, a walking play for kids about climate change. A City of Davis Arts grant funded the play. The kids joined a guide to learn how to produce less CO2, help the environment and stop global warming. The Nature’s Theater group put on a wonderful and interactive show on January 29th leading the group throughout Central Park to track down the naughty CO2’s and find the King of Carbon. Great fun was had by all!
Tuleyome was founded in 2002 as a volunteer advocacy-oriented nonprofit conservation organization. Their mission is to engage in advocacy and active stewardship with diverse communities to conserve, enhance, restore, and enjoy the lands in the region. Lyndsay Dawkins is one of the founders of Nature’s Theater, a program which uses story to create nature-based programming and opportunities for school-aged children. Teens are the mentors for younger kids and volunteer their time.
