Party for the Planet

Saturday, April 22

Celebrate Mother earth and learn all about recycling, reusing and conserving our world through educational displays and fun activities.

Local Agricultural Science and FFA programs will have miniature gardens with recycled materials incorporated into their designs on display in the Great Hall of the Museum of Science on April 22 & 23.
Special thanks to the following participating schools:
