Every year our Sunday School does a spring clean up with the K-1 class on up. The preschool class does a similar clean up at the school grounds along with a Nature exploration walk. This year I had to be away, but I was so sad to miss it! It was a gorgeous day and I heard that all parties had a FANTASTIC time, as well as picking up tons and tons of recyclables and garbage. It's kind of sad though when you think about it. The kids clean the same patch of stream banks every year and every, single, year they collect bags and bags and bags of trash and recylables.
What a great day to be outdoors after a very, very long winter and cold beginning of spring. Enjoying the outdoors while doing something good for the planet! Win-win!
