Education & Outreach
Is your organization looking for someone to speak about sustainability? The Oldsmar Sustainability Team is here to educate the community on a wide range of topics. Some common topics include sustainability, climate change, community planning, green business, water, energy, transportation, recycling, pollution, green building, Florida-friendly landscaping, environmental education, and more. We have a variety of presentations, workshops, and hands-on activities available for all ages. Check out some of past events and educational outreach below.
Email the Sustainability Coordinator to request a speaker.
Kids are our future, and we want to prepare them for it. By working with existing camps - such as Oldsmar Adventure and Spring Break Camp, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Marine Science Camp, and other summer camps - we can help campers become more environmentally conscious. Previous topics have included:
- Water filtration and watershed management
- Plantable paper from recycled paper
- Recycled planters and pollinator gardens
- Recycling game
- Biodigesters and food waste reduction
We love going out into the community and partnering with local organizations! We recently partnered with the Oldsmar Organic Community Garden and UF/IFAS Pinellas Extension to co-host an Outdoor Series. Topics include:
- Rain Barrels
- Vegetable Gardening
- Florida Friendly Landscaping
- Food Preservation
The Sustainable Oldsmar team works hard to reach as many people as possible. In addition to City events, we are happy come out to your events to promote sustainability initiatives.
