Many places right in your own community can be a gateway for you to get active with the environment. Places like your local library or a nearby zoo offer environmental programs (a lot of time free ones!). This can also be a great way to help educate kids on environmental issues. If you are in the Northwest Ohio region here’s an upcoming opportunity you might be interested in: Toledo Zoo’s Party for the Planet!
