We can use this event to look forward to Earth Day on April 22, 2015 and Arbor Day on April 24, 2015. Come get some great ideas from the many displays and activities to put to good use in the Spring.
This event is free to the public. Bring the family to participate and learn more about Earth Day and the activities of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art-creativity and Math). There will be games, activities, informational booths and student projects on display. At around 1:30 PM the names of the Earth Day Poster Contest winners will be announced.
