When: Sun., April 26, 1-4 p.m. 2015
As many as 50 community partners from all over the state will present almost 60 activities to make learning accessible, engaging and fun. The JCC requires that Earth Day partners provide a hands-on activity, as opposed to a passive exhibit, to enhance the learning experience. For example, JCC Earth Day visitors may construct mini-greenhouses, participate in an orienteering exercise in the woods, make crafts from recycled materials and take advantage of free e-recycling of old computers and electronics. A sampling of community partners includes Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Girl Scouts of Central Indiana, Hoosier Environmental Council, Ivy Tech, Purdue University Solar Racing Team, The Nature Conservancy and Sierra Club. Some of Indy’s favorite food trucks will be on the premises, as well as non-food vendors with “green and sustainable” items for sale. Live music will be provided by the band Sure Thing, an acoustic rock duo.
