NovemberNov 04 2020 02:00pm - 03:00pm America/New_York
Learn two hands-on activities that help kids see how our waste impacts our waterways, with Perry County recycling educator Katrina Carpenter.
- Fred the Fish – a visual, hands-on lesson about the journey of a fish named Fred as he travels a local Ohio perennial stream.He encounters every possible pollutant including non-point and point source pollution, such as basic litter left at a park picnic sight, fertilizer and pesticides over-applied in a nearby residential yard, motor oil dumped on ground from someone who changed their own oil.
- Edible Landfill – another visual, hands-on lesson where you build a landfill from the bottom up, then eat it! Using crushed graham crackers, Oreos, pudding, etc. This lesson helps students and adults understand the importance of BAT (Best Available Technology) in sanitary landfill construction, one layer at a time, BAT is required by law and monitored by our local health department and the EPA to protect our groundwater from potential contamination.
