Pine Ridge, South Dakota 2018

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,

Riley
