Trashed Scavenger Hunt
A scavenger hunt that combines thoughtful discussion of trash in national lands with a high energy family friendly activity.
Artistically, Trashed accomplishes Ms. Goring's personal goal of having the viewer engage in thoughtful discussion about the relationship of trash in nature.
Each event starts with a discussion of art, using Ms. Goring's amazing TRASHED images.
As a community event, Trashed brings people together of different ages and background, and anyone, regardless of age or ability, can participate. This activity literally puts the visitor into the environment, exploring in a manner they would not previously have employed.
Because of the competitive aspect, participants have lots of fun, and their high energy is contagious to all: Everyone walks away happy, knowing they have made the forest a bit safer for wildlife.
Practically, the environment benefits from the removal of trash, and the trash is then cleaned and recycled into art supplies.
Ms. Goring also has SCULPTURE, POETRY, and PLAYWRITING workshops, and with many trained staff, they can accommodate large groups.
Ms. Goring has several trained volunteer artisans.
Participants explore TRASHED playing cards. A unique image on each card:
Crown out of trash...participants love donning one of Ms. Gorings many crowns!
