Kids and families can help the environment by reducing, reusing, and recycling. But why not get out in nature and get your hands dirty? We got some inspiration from families and local business, like Urban Roots, that are supporting the community by pulling out weeds and planting trees!
Even kids can help take care of planet earth! When Lakeside Elementary discovered the kids in the classroom had a passion for the environment, they started an Eco Club to put their inspiration into action. Their latest project? Pulling garlic mustard plants, an invasive species, that kids are learning to identify and remove to help native plants thrive. The students enjoy helping the environment by being outdoors and making a difference.
