Going Green Together presented by the Los Angeles Environmental Education Fair is Saturday, March 10, 2012, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden. Young people, their families and those people who educated them will discover the latest hands-on activities, ready-to-use lesson ideas, and useful resources that are easily incorporated into everyday life from leading organizations that promote environmental education and awareness. Over 60 organizations will present hands-on activities, ready-to-use lesson plans, field trip and assembly ideas, and other useful resources for school and home environmental projects.
Live entertainment with music, art, hands-on activities, and storytelling will make this a fun-filled day for all. Visit wild animals, pick-up a free pine seedling, participate in environmental challenges, and take an “Eco-Tour” to some of the unique areas of the Arboretum. Join us for free workshops designed to teach families and children ways that they can help make the world a little greener!
The Ecological Treasure Hunt is open to students in grades 4 through 12. Using a map and compass, teams will explore the ecological treasures of The Arboretum, and will be challenged to answer questions about the world of nature. The Eco Hunt is open to school groups, children’s organizations, families and the general public. Contact Gary Widdison to participate.
