WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Renfrew Institute of Waynesboro announced recently the sponsorship, in part, of two environmental education programs by JLG Industries Inc., McConnellsburg, Pa.

During Marvin, a program for first graders, students help a colorful puppet from outer space follow the stars to find the four "needs of life." The importance of soil, air, water and sunlight is the focus of hands-on activities.
