40th Anniversary of Earth Day!

This Earth Day, Let’s Get Smart, Get Healthy, and Get Kids Outside!

Join the No Child Left Inside Coalition and Earth Day Network as they call on parents, teachers, and schools across the country to take kids outside to learn on the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, April 22, 2010.

We all know that Mother Nature is a great teacher, and that getting students outside to learn and play is good for their brains and their bodies. Please help spread the word, in hopes that every student across the country will have the opportunity to experience the outdoor classroom this Earth Day.

Shaver’s Creek will be participating in a few of these upcoming Earth Day fairs and festivals. Come visit us!
