Yesterday, the cub scouts took a tour of a local landfill.
They were super excited and had lots of comments and questions for our very patient tour guide.
We saw some cool trucks at work.
The scouts had a great time and learned a lot about reducing waste and recycling. Nicholas especially loved the little toy garbage truck and light up yo-yo that he was given!
Republic Services has some good online resources to help children learn about protecting the environment including a Recycle Rosie Curriculum and an online newspaper called Earth Preservers. Check it out!
