We congratulate the Green Earth Book Awards on 10 Years of honoring environmental children’s literature and their donation this year of 10,000 environmental books with a message of stewardship to area schools!
“Being able to deliver engaging material about the environment in such a big way is a perfect representation of our first decade of success,” said Ian Kline, chairman of the board. “We’ve engaged thousands of students with books, outdoor classrooms, and even a student-designed nature trail. The impact is incredible – we’ve seen children of all ages embrace environmental responsibility through our programs.”
