Learn about our 'Green Teams' in the Iron County Elementary Schools. Games and crafting will be available for all ages. A large paper drop off for documents to be securely shredded will be provided to all those in the area for the day.

Recycling Drives: bring your mixed materials (plastics, metals, paper, & cardboard) to be recycled. Prizes will be awarded throughout the Celebration! "This occasion is designed to educate, motivate, and inspire individuals to live more Earth-friendly lives. What will you do? There is change on the horizon, as Global Citizens what can we do to get engaged, to make a change? There are many opportunities to make sound economic and ecological choices that coincide with our daily and long-term endeavors. I urge you to create avenues to develop and enhance a 'Green' community. Join us in celebrating at our event and seeing what can be accomplished when we work together!"
