Play Day Fun!
Our first Community Play day was a great hit. Nearly 30 children plus their parents visited our Oakland site on Saturday June 21st to explore, learn, and play. Families enjoyed a Guided Tour, Fun With Bugs, and Woodland Creature Leaf Art.

Unity Point Sixth Graders Help Green Earth Again!
Unity Point Science Teacher, Christopher Midden, brought the entire sixth grade class to Green Earth’s Chautauqua Bottoms in early May for the fourth year in a row. This field trip is the culmination of a unit on native ecosystems and the negative impact of invasive species. With the help of several Unity Point teachers and GE chaperones, approximately 50 students hand-pulled invasive garlic mustard for several hours. The students are learning the importance of native habitats, the difficulty in fighting invasives, and different practices for effectively removing various plants. Our thanks to the students and the chaperones who made this possible!
