Back-to-School Activities


Leave It to Nature

Fall into community composting. This is a great back-to-school activity for school or at home.

What You'll Need:

  • Rake
  • Garbage bags
  • Telephone

After you rake and bag your leaves, it's time to pick up the telephone.

Step 1: Call your local city government office and ask if they have a community compost location.

Step 2: If they do, talk mom and dad into loading the leaves into your family car instead of the trash collection barrel.

Step 3: Bring your compost over to the community location and leave it there -- allowing nature to break down the organic material and keep trash landfills free for other disposables.

Help the ducks get ready for winter too. See the next page for more.
