Scout/Youth Organizations

Our education specialist can come to your site and conduct hands-on activities on recycling, composting and many other environmental activities. Challenge your campers and participants to a no garbage lunch and have them collect trash and recycling items to make crafts and other useful gifts.

Day Camp and Summer Programs

Reduce, reuse and recycle can be incorporated into summer day camp, library and youth programs. Our Education Specialist can teach campers how to make crafts from items that would normally be thrown away.
