Going Green for Earth Day

Dr. Tammy DeFranco, developed and coordinated an interactive Earth Day Program where students learned valuable environmental information on composting, planting flowers to help with the bee and butterfly population. The Cape May Zoo provided “Annie” the Armadillo and “Susie” the python snake and informed students how important it is to keep our environment clean so their environment will thrive. Students had the opportunity to paint birdhouses, and other crafts they could start their environmentally safe garden with the free seeds they were given. Students also learned about the solutions to Stormwater Pollution (thank you to Eileen Curristine,Chief Officer Human Resources & Public Safety & Compliance) for this information. Thank you to April Wolff (IT) for providing “Sounds of Nature” music and pictures of the environment for students to see what a beautiful world we have and how to preserve it. A big thank you to the ACCCEA for the pretzels and water ice and to S.G.A. for the pizza and soda, the students loved everything and were so grateful for the goodies.
