Earth Week 2020 – For-Mar Youth Service Project #1 – End Plastic Pollution

Time: 9:30 -11:30am & 12 – 2pm. 

It’s Earth Week and that means it’s time to give back and help make the Earth a better place for everyone!  For-Mar is inviting classrooms and students grade 5th – 12th to join us as we work on 5 different Youth Service Projects, themed around past Earth Day Foundation themes. Each day the service projects will follow a Learn/Work/Teach and Take Action Model.

Day 1’s theme is End Plastic Pollution. Throughout today’s service project, students will: “Learn” – different ways they can reduce their plastic consumption and items they can recycle, “Work”- to help clean up the park by doing a Park Wide Litter Clean Up, and “Teach and Take Action” – by creating a plan for their school on how to start a recycling program at-home, in-class, in-grade, in-school, in-district, etc.

For 5th – 12th grades, all abilities.

Cost: FREE!

Pre-registration is required by 4/13/20.  Individuals & families can register by calling 810.736.7100 ext 6.  Classrooms and Organized Groups must contact For-Mar staff, Nicole or Courtney, at 810.789.8567 or email nferguson@gcparks.org.  Space is limited, there are only two classroom spaces open for each time frame.
