We celebrate Earth Day
Every spring since 2007 the City of Springfield’s Environmental Services Division has held an Earth Day project for local elementary school students.
We’re Springfield’s Stormwater Team and taking care of water and waterways in Springfield is our job. That makes us local experts on the Earth! We and our coworkers in other departments have a lot to share because we oversee the planning, construction, regulation, and maintenance of Springfield’s infrastructure and many public spaces.
As parents and family members ourselves, we’re passionate about educating young people on how Springfield works. For 3rd graders we offer Public Works Week. For 5th graders we provide Clean Water University. Earth Day is all about our 4th graders.
Earth Day comes in spring and it’s a great time to introduce kiddos to the Earth at the local level, as well as for us to discover what the Earth and our City means to them.
Happy Earth Day!
