from Denise Trufan/Indian Land Elementary School
The EcoWarrriors of Indian Land Elementary School held its eighth annual Earth Day celebration after school April 30.
Denise Trufan, the club’s mentor, won a Tree Award from the National Wildlife Federation. They sent Indian Land Elementary School six beautiful trees from Sugar Creek Nursery for the outdoor learning center at the school and two trees to give away.
The Gasque and Slater families each won a gift bag with assorted, small prizes; a large, beautiful tree; and two guest passes to the Charlotte Nature Museum.
Other people attending the event received their choice of a 2-year-old red oak or red maple tree.
The Indian Land Elementary School EcoWarrriors, a group of second- through fifth-grade students, performed environmental songs and poetry.
There were healthy fruit and vegetable snacks, sweet tea and lemonade and, of course, homemade Earth Day cakes.
Other Earth Day activities
The Indian Land Elementary School EcoWarrriors also took part in the Charlotte Nature Museum’s special Earth Day Creature Feature event, Earth Day Play Date, on April 21.
The group performed a puppet show, “Carolina Morning,” as well as other Earth Day songs and performances for children who attended the event.
