Mundelein Park District and SWALCO Team-Up to Celebrate Earth Day

Join Mundelein Park & Recreation District and SWALCO as we celebrate and learn about promoting environmental awareness at the upcoming Earth Day & Recycling Event on Sunday, April 22 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. This fun and free activity will be held at the Dunbar Recreation Center at 888 Dunbar Road, Mundelein.

The event kicks-off with an Eco Concert by Jack Kauffman from In-The-Green Productions (www.in-the-green.com). The concert includes live music enhanced with a video presentation of waste reduction information and images of visualized natural beauty. There will be activities to get your green on for both young and old. Get crafty and make recycled crayons and a bird feeder, play in the dirt with a planting activity, sow the seeds of learning with a recycling experiment or take the challenge in the Eco-friendly scavenger hunt.

There will be recycling opportunities as well, with SWALCO offering a textile, bike and latex paint drop off (for a small fee/container) and a Shredder Truck. Clean out that dusty craft closet and bring your unwanted items for Fremont Public Library’s Craft-O-Rama drop off. Special thanks to our Green Partner Integral Orthodontics (www.integralorthodontics.com).

The first 125 people will receive a FREE tree (limit one per family) from the Million Trees Project (www.livinglandsandwaters.org/volunteer/million-trees/). Varieties will include Red or Burr Oaks. Trees come wrapped and stand about 2 ft. in height and include a set of instructions on how to plant.

Give back to Mother Nature and join the MPD and SWALCO for an Earth Day celebration. Registration is not necessary for the event! For more information go to our website at mundeleinparks.org or visit us on Facebook at @mundeleinparks.
