You Can Help Save the Planet

Earth Day 2014

Earth Day 2014How can you help protect our environment?

Small actions that we all do can make a big difference. Learn about the things that we can easily compost and recycle daily.  Eco kids can take the lead to make their family Earth savers by:
1.   Recycling
2.   Composting
3.   Learning about what is hazardous to our planet
4.   Riding a bike instead of driving in a car
5.   Living a healthy lifestyle
Join the Steam Team on Friday, April 18, 2014 at 4 p.m. in the Children's Room (200) and discover how every day can be Earth Day. Come and hear stories, play games, learn about how you can live a healthier lifestyle and promote a cleaner environment, and earn your Earth Friendly Kid badge.  Using other young people as an example as well as environment pioneers such as Rachel Carson, you can start a movement to improve the planet.
