The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Community -

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.
