In the Conservation Club program, the three principles of conservation (reduce, reuse, recycle) will guide this program; we will learn how to reduce our use of energy and water. Students will get creative, reusing materials in projects such as garbage art. We will recycle everything we can from bottles to banana peels while exploring the excitement of compost and worm bins!
