Today is National America Recyles Day. Recycling helps us save the Earth for future generations. You can recycle by just throwing your items into the recycle bins we all seem to have these days. OR you can make reusable crafts out of your recycle items. Sarah Sexton will help you learn about ways to be creative with your recycleables!


Come to this program to get some ideas of what you can do with your recyclables to use in your home or give as gifts to friends and family. You will also have the opportunity to make and take something home with you.


This program is family oriented, but please use your discretion on the age of children you bring. The make and take items are geared to older children not the wee ones. Children must be accompanied by a parent.
