Fun Earth Day Activities for The Entire Family You Can Do at Your Home

Here's a little inspiration: We recently held a drawing contest where we provided the kids with the following statement, "Nature ROCKS!  Show us what you love about nature in a drawing."  Below is the entry from our number one pick - Sophie Russell, Age 9 from Edwards Elementary School.  Thank you Sophie for sharing your vision!  Sophie's work will be featured in a greeting card series available from our campus store this summer.

Nature ROCKS!
