O.W. Erlewine students celebrate Earth Day

e-Connections Post

O.W. Erlewine School held its sixth annual Earth Day Celebration on Friday.

Students rotated to the many different activity stations throughout the campus. They went on walks through the school’s Nature Area which was established in 1965. Then they learned about the different types of animals that live on the American River Parkway. Students rode bikes that generated the power to create their own smoothies, learned about fly fishing and green cars and built bird feeders by using pine cones. 

Earth Day is a joint effort between START, 4th R and Erlewine faculty, staff and PTA. Community partners include SMUD, The American River Parkway Foundation, The Fly Fisherman Association, Harrold Ford and Heath Corp. 

Erlewine students enjoy learning through the variety of Earth Day activities each year.
