Friday-Turn No School Day to Helping the Environment Day

Have children in Prince George’s County schools?  Then you know that they don’t have school this Friday, Oct. 18.   WSSC and Prince George’s County Forestry Board in partnership with M-NCPPC is offering a service learning opportunity on Friday, Oct. 18 from 9 a.m. to Noon in front of the West Hyattsville Metro Station, 2700 Hamilton, Hyattsville.

We will be gathering acorns to send to the Maryland State Tree Nursery-as well as picking up trash. According to recent studies, oaks provide food, shelter and cover for more species of wildlife than any other tree. WSSC will provide gloves and bags.  You may want to bring water to drink.   For more information, contact WSSC at 301-206-8233.
