Submitted by Billie Owens on April 29, 2014 - 12:10pm
In an effort to educate students and the community on recycling, conserving energy, and going “green” in general, the City of Batavia Youth Bureau is sponsoring its Annual Earth Day event at 9 a.m. on May 10 at Austin Park. School and community groups, as well as the community at large are invited to participate.
Local agencies will set up booths and interactive displays for the participants to visit. The students will also receive giveaways at some of the booths. After folks have visited all of the booths, school/student groups will be sent out to clean a park or an area within the city. We will then meet back at Austin Park and each of the students in attendance will plant their own seedling to take home. Everyone is then invited to a pizza lunch. The event will conclude at approximately 12:30 p.m..
If you would like more information on Earth Day or would like to participate, call the Batavia Youth Bureau at 345-6420.
