Short Course Spotlight: Keep Louisiana Beautiful Presents the “Hows” and “Whys” of Recycling

The Louisiana Environmental Education State Symposium, sponsored by Shell, will take place  February 23-24 at the Baton Rouge Marriott. Early-Bird registration is still open for attendees.
The theme this year is “Green STEM.” Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to join other formal and non-formal environmental educators from every corner of Louisiana and surrounding states as we meet to share EE teaching techniques and practices, new research and information, and spend time discussing our experiences as educators. Choose from multiple concurrent sessions to fit your interest and grade level.
To help you get the most out of the symposium, we're offering a selection of five optional Friday short courses. These 7-hour workshops spend the whole day focused on one subject.
Today's spotlight is on "Keep Louisiana Beautiful Presents the 'Hows' and 'Whys' of Recycling." Join  Susan Russell and Christy Paulsell from Keep Louisiana Beautiful as they lead a tour of the Baton Rouge Recycling Center. Attendees will gain a better understanding the recycling process and why it is so important to managing waste.  Attendees will return to the Marriott for the second half of the day which will include hands-on activities and lessons focused on teaching students how and why they should reduce, reuse and recycle.  KLB will provide teachers with lesson plans, activity sheets, resources and hands-on activities.
Event type: Tour & Hands-on Workshop
