August 19
Circles and Ripples
Led by SWUU’s own Ken Ellis
Our lives unfold in ripples of change and learning. We are tempted to live within fixed circles due to fear, prejudice, and ignorance. There is so much to gain if we ride the ripples and experience the joy of expanding our knowledge and seek or see beyond ourselves, our community, our country, and our planet.

Focus Collection for August:
Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center

This August the focus collection will support the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education
Center that provides opportunities for over 9000 children each year via overnight, day, and summer programs in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The campus includes overnight dorms, garden-totable greenhouse and onsite kitchen, classrooms, trails, ponds, and wetlands. For most students, this is an experience that marks many firsts: hiking along a creek, learning to skip stones, sitting around a nighttime campfire, and learning about how their daily lives
connect to the surrounding environment. Teachers and rangers welcome and engage
students from diverse urban and suburban communities. Learning activities include water
testing along the river for oxygen and temperature to gauge the river’s health as well as
discovering plants and animals of the Cuyahoga River watershed on campus trails. At the hoop house campers see food go from garden to table before their eyes. Night hikes are
unforgettable for many kids who have never walked in the woods, complete with hooting owls and wind in the trees. A community of new friends live in cozy, safe dorms on campus where having fun is the norm. Please help with your contribution.
