Middlesex County youth entering grades 3-6 are invited to attend a fun educational program that will help them learn about and care for the environment.

“Eco-Ventures at the EARTH Center” is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. from Aug. 19-22 at the EARTH Center, located in Davidson’s Mill Pond Park, Riva Ave., South Brunswick.

Each day’s events will have a different theme.

Hands-on activities will explore topics such as ecology, water and resource conservation, climate change, alternative energy and earth-friendly gardening.

Most days will begin with a team-building exercise to help students get acquainted.

On Aug. 21, a field trip will be featured, and later in the week, students will create public service announcements.

The registration fee of $100 includes program materials, a peanut-free snack, beverages and a parting gift. Attendees are expected to bring their own brown bag lunch.

Arrangements can be made for attendees with special needs.

The registration deadline is July 30. To register, call the Middlesex County 4-H office at 732-398-5261.
