Mother Earth Knows Best fair


Project Discovery students will observe Earth Day by hosting the Mother Earth Knows Best Fair, featuring booths and activities to educate the public on environmental issues, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 19, at Chinquapin Park, 3210 King Street. Highlights include a quiz show about Eco-Myth Busters and Factoids; maps of shifting snow belts, glacier shrinkage, rising sea levels and ocean currents; the benefits of buying local versus factory-farmed foods; a tour of the veggie-mobile (a car that runs on vegetable oil); and much more.  Project Discovery, a program within the Alexandria Department of Human Services, Office of Youth Services, assists low-income and/or first-generation students in entering and completing college.
