U.S. organizations host Earth Day event for Coffeeville Elementary students

 This is a news release from Natural Resources Conservation Service 

The United States Department of Agriculture / Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the United States Forest Service (USFS) will hold an Earth Day event with Coffeeville Elementary students to celebrate the 41st anniversary of Earth Day. The students will transplant butterfly milkweed plants to the campus pollinator garden. Milkweeds are an essential part of the diet and habitat of the Monarch Butterfly.

Pollinators assist in the production of one out of every three bites of food for Americans. One of the best ways to support pollinator populations is to establish pollinator gardens in cities, farms and ranches.  Educating the public about creating these gardens is the first step toward greater pollinator stewardship.

Earth Day began on April 22, 1970 and is the largest civic event in the world, celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities. More than a billion people participate in Earth Day events every year.

The program will be Wednesday April 22 at 1:00 p.m. at the Coffeeville Elementary School, located at 104 Davis Street, Coffeeville, Mississippi. Dignitaries from across the state will be in attendance.

Date:

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Time:

1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Location:

Coffeeville Elementary School

104 Davis Street

Coffeeville, MS 38922
