WORK­SHOP SCHEDULE:

4:30 PM — RECY­CLING JEW­LERY
Did you know that enough plas­tic bot­tles are wast­ed each year to wrap around the earth 190 times? We all want to be more envi­ron­men­tal­ly con­scious and re-use or recy­cle plas­tic bot­tles and what bet­ter way to make use of them than to turn them into some­thing that can be worn over and over again? Make bracelets out of them with the help of an iron! No seri­ous paint­ing or craft­ing skills are required to make a per­son­al­ized bracelet! 

5:30 PM- TREE PLANT­I­NG CER­E­MO­NY
Join the Mar­i­on Parks Depart­ment team as they plant a tree in hon­or of cel­e­brat­ing the earth and its resources.

6 PM — HOW DOES WATER GET CLEAN?
You know what you flush or send down the drain, but what hap­pens to it? Where does it go? See the water treat­ment process up close!

Host­ed by City of Mar­i­on Parks & Recre­ation and Mar­i­on Utilities
