IN-PERSON: The Elderwise classroom at the Vineyard Church
Join us to learn about the circular economy, and resources available to create a community where we can reduce waste, reuse products and materials, and regenerate nature. Katy Adams and Mackenzie Munro will explain what is compostable and recyclable, and answer our questions about these important issues around waste. We will illustrate ways we see for eliminating waste by crafting a paper quilt square to help us build a community paper quilt! Education Director Katy Adams joined the Ecology Center's education team in 2014. Her advanced degrees in biology and education, along with over 15 years of teaching and practical experience as a research scientist, give her a unique ability to understand environmental issues and share them with others. Assistant Education Director Mackenzie Munro joined the Ecology Center team in 2015. She earned her bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan in environmental science and biology, and has twelve years of experience with other organizations, teaching environmental science and related topics to students of all ages.
