Rogue Valley Earth Day

We had a wonderful time as an exhibitor at Rogue Valley Earth Day held at the ScienceWorks Hands-On Museum in Ashland! This free event is an annual celebration for all ages to learn about environmental stewardship and build community in a fun and inspirational setting. The Caterpillar was one of over 70 exhibits covering such topics as energy conservation, solid waste reduction, local food and farms, green products and building materials, renewable electricity sources, transportation alternatives, and many more.
