‘It’s Easy Being Green’ continues
SHERBURNE, N.Y. >> While Kermit the Frog may say otherwise, the team at Rogers Environmental Education Center continues to demonstrate that it is actually easy to be green.
Join Friends of Rogers and Kimberly LaCoe, regional coordinator of recycling outreach and education with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as this interactive workshop series continues. Each month, participants will explore a specific topic, including a brief history, applicable laws and policy, and assistance opportunities to address the issue.
Celebrate “America Recycles Day” on Nov. 15 with a “trash” swap and scavenger hunt. “You’ll never take trash at face value or look at it the same way,” said LaCoe. “Bring a friend or two. The more the merrier. Remember, it is interactive so, the more conversation, the more eye opening and learning the experience will be.”
“It’s Easy Being Green” is held at 6:30 p.m. the third Thursday of every month. Workshops take place at Rogers Environmental Education Center, just off state Route 80 in Sherburne. Rogers Center is operated by Friends of Rogers Environmental Education Center, Inc., a nonprofit organization that offers educational programs for people of all ages. Seasonal hours are from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
