I wanted to share what GRID Alternatives wrote about this summer’s solar installation on the Pine Ridge Native American Reservation. I can definitely speak for all of EcoAction when I say that we were so grateful to be able to give back to those who have served our country, especially during Memorial Day. We can’t wait to share more pictures and updates with you, but for now, please click the link below!
Hello, all! As you know, EcoAction traveled to the Pine Ridge Native American Reservation last year and successfully installed solar panels on a veteran’s home there (Check it out by clicking HERE). This year, we plan to do it again with our amazing partners at GRID Alternatives! We are so excited for the opportunity to give a sustainable energy option to those who will greatly benefit. To keep updated on this summer’s trip, be sure to check back here as the summer progresses!
To be prepared for this year’s trip, we have been conducting solar training meetings at Cherry Creek High School. AP Environmental teacher and EcoAction club sponsor Jeff Boyce has been leading these trainings, and we feel very prepared for this summer’s install! Not only has this been an amazing collaborative experience for the students who regularly attend the trainings, it also has been a way for students that are passionate about the environment to learn about solar panels, a critical and beneficial way to protect and connect with our surrounding environment. Those traveling to Pine Ridge this summer are beyond excited for what is to come. We hope you can’t wait to hear about it!
Peace and Love,
A special shoutout to the 7th grade at West Middle School for participating in our fundraising efforts! To donate money, click HERE.
Thank you for all of your support and go West!
“As human beings, we are vulnerable to confusing the unprecedented with the improbable. In our everyday experience, if something has never happened before, we are generally safe in assuming it is not going to happen in the future, but the exceptions can kill you and climate change is one of those exceptions.” -Al Gore

Cherry Creek High School’s Ecological Action Club will be hosting a screening of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, a movie focused on the efforts of former Vice President Al Gore to educate the global population about the effects of climate change. We will show the movie on Friday, April 20th from 5-8pm at Cherry Creek High School. As an environmental club, not only is it important for us to do everything in our power to enact positive change in our environment, but also to ensure that the people in our community are aware of important issues affecting our environment such as climate change. Following the movie, a group of students will be available to answer any questions about important climate change issues or other questions about the movie. We are so excited for this opportunity and cannot wait to see you there!
Tickets will be $10 at the door and will go towards installing solar panels on a veteran’s home on the Pine Ridge Native American Reservation this summer!
If you are unable to attend the screening, but would like to contribute to EcoAction’s fundraising efforts, please click HERE.
Love to all,
On February 1st, EcoAction had the pleasure of having a table at Cherry Creek High School’s Ethnic Fest, a celebration of culture and diversity within our community. Along with intricate henna designs, amazing performances, and crazy good food, our small contribution to the festivities were Belgian waffles! The money we made went directly to our Solar Panel fund. We are looking forward to heading out again this summer to install Solar Panels on the Pine Ridge Native American Reservation! Check out what we did last summer by clicking HERE. For everyone who stopped by, thank you so much for donating your time and money at such a unique event! We hoped you enjoyed our waffles and see you next year!
P.S: Be sure to keep an eye out for our upcoming fundraisers, including PATXI’S PIZZA!
