Family friendly activities will be available, with an emphasis on the “Five R’s — Reducing, Reusing, Repurposing, Recycling, and Rotting”, as well as celebrating and encouraging the sustainability of our Wildlife Pollinators, and Green Energy Practices.

We will again have “starter” trees available beginning the 23rd, free to any family wishing to plant them at home.  These are available until the supply is exhausted.
