Earth Day Presentation to take place at Zane Gray Elementary School
Posted on 04/24/2011
The Ohio College Guides from AmeriCorps’ College Access Program will be at Zane Gray Elementary School to give an Earth Day presentation to the third grade students. This program will educate the students about recycling, global warming and the effects of littering. The students will learn how to turn their recycled milk cartons into flower pots using flowers donated by Timber Run Gardens. All materials used in this program are both recyclable and biodegradable.
AmeriCorps is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service, an independent federal agency whose mission is to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering. Part of the service requirement for AmeriCorps is creating capacity building events for the community. Our goal with this Earth Day inspired project is to educate the students on the role that they play in creating a healthier planet now and in the future. We hope that, with the knowledge that they receive from this presentation, they will make better decisions when it comes to recycling and littering, as well as inform their peers and family members of what role they, too, can play.
