Earth Day EcoFair Celebrations Planned


The St. Croix Environmental Association (SEA) and Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) invite students in third through sixth grades to the 15th annual Earth Day EcoFair. The event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 22 and 23, at St. George Village Botanical Garden.
For the first time fifth and sixth grade students are also invited to participate in the Litter Stomp, a one-mile march from VIWMA headquarters to the Botanical Garden to protest roadside litter and raise awareness of the negative impacts of litter in the community. It will begin at 8 a.m., on Earth Day, April 22. Classes are urged to create banners with anti-litter slogans, and awards will be given to recognize the best messages.
Presenters from government, non-government and private industry have created interactive demonstrations and games to familiarize students with local environmental issues such as non-point source pollution, solid waste management, coral reef conservation, forest ecology and many other topics.
Teachers are urged to register no later than April 7 to secure a space for their students. To obtain registration forms or additional information, contact Vanessa Forbes at 773-1989.
