Every spring since 2007 the City of Springfield’s Environmental Services Division has held an Earth Day project for local elementary school students. We do this because, as family members and parents ourselves, we value our children and we work hard every day to ensure Springfield is a safe, fun place to grow up.  

City staff are in a great position to talk about the local environment because we oversee the planning, construction, and maintenance of Springfield’s infrastructure, which helps keep our community livable and running smoothly. We have a lot of practical knowledge about how the city works and we love sharing what we know with the next generation. 

This year, Springfield’s 4th-Grade classrooms had the opportunity to learn about our stormwater system, which has a large impact on the city’s environment. Then students were invited to share their Earth Day art with us.
