Westlake 1st Grade visits Grey Bears

group_1A wonderful pod of 20 first-graders from Westlake Elementary took a field trip to Grey Bears on Earth Day, 2013. Grey Bears CEO, Tim Brattan, led the eager group through worm composting with Morganne, e-waste recycling with Roland, the brown bag and food conservation program with David (including inside the main cooler), Earth Tub composting with Tony, chair yoga with Suzi, the Chanticleer recycling center with Rick and ending in the thrift store.
