Discovery Station

Earth Day will be celebrated at Discovery Station Sunday at 3 p.m. 

The special science program with student activities is based on the book, “A River Ran Wild,” by Lynn Cherry.

This book will encourage children to be aware of and how to care for their environment.

The book is the true story of changes in New England’s Nashua River over the centuries, and how man has destroyed and later reclaimed the river and the land around it.

The children will document these changes on a map. To help children remember the importance of caring for their environment, they will create a 3-D model using trash in a constructive way instead of using it to pollute the environment. 

All children participating in the class will receive their own tree to plant to beautify their environment.

There is no fee for this class.

Mary Licht and Pat Beard, retired teachers for Washington County Public Schools, will present the program.
