Earth Day 2012 Events for the whole family

Do you have a pile of electronic gadgets that no longer work, cluttering your space? Would you like to learn why there are so many different types of plastics? Or, would you like to learn about using worms to recycle food waste into nutritious, organic soil, or, learn about glaciers and watersheds on the other side of the planet, dealing with similar issues to Chaffee County? Join Salida Recreation, Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area, Greater Arkansas River Nature Association, Angel of Shavano Recycling, Metech Recycling, and Habitat for Humanity Restore on Saturday, April 21st for a full line-up of Earth Day celebrations. Safely and securely recycle those electronics, learn about worm composting, bring the kids for some fun and educational activities, and more! Events will take place at the Scout Hut (210 E Sackett Ave) between 10:00 am and 2:30 pm. Please call Maggie at 539-5703 or visit for a complete schedule of events.

  2. Angel of Shavano Recycling

    Angel of Shavano Recycling will be at this event as well to answer any questions about Chaffee County's recycling program. This is a great time to ask questions about how the sorting process works, especially the plastics.
