Local nonprofit educates and entertains on Earth Day

Posted:

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — On Earth Day, McGinnis Woods Country Day School and Cumming Elementary students received educational and entertaining presentations from Reaping Nature Educational Outreach Foundation, a Forsyth County-based nonprofit organization.

McGinnis Woods kindergarten, first-, second- and third-graders took part in Reaping Nature’s “I Like to Recycle” program.

This interactive program was presented by Denise Carleton, Reaping Nature’s founder, and Lisa LaFayette, educating listeners about reusing, reducing and recycling, natural resources and the history of the recycling symbol.

Cumming Elementary students in kindergarten through fifth grade listened to Reaping Nature’s “My Summer Adventure: A Bee Extraction” program.

This interactive program presented by Carleton and LaFayette educates listeners about an actual bee extraction at Carleton’s house, honey bees and their importance in the food chain.

“Reaping Nature created this program when asked to be part of our Earth Day activities,” said Anna Doll, teacher of exceptional children and Cumming Elementary’s Green Team sponsor.

“It was a perfect fit, and helped round out the exceptional programming we offered on Earth Day.”
