Evans Middle School students participated in the first annual Hodges Gardens Earth Day Fair on April 22, 2010. Students participated in activities that focused on the environment. Students learned about animals, plants, pollution and water. After a picnic lunch and a visit from Smokey Bear, students were given a tour of the gardens by the Hodges Gardens horticulturist. Students brought ideas from the activities back to school and taught the concepts to the elementary students during our third annual service learning fair and grant celebration. PreK - 8th grade students had a

picnic lunch on Friday, May 7 and participated in round robin environmental activities. Students learned many things about the environment and had a great time learning from the middle school students. A special thanks to our grant partners this year: Ms. Kathy Jarrell, Vernon Parish 4-H leaders Kim and Chad, McMahon Nursery, Mr. James Armes, MS. Tammy Kay, Ms. Pam Brister,

and many others. This project was supported by a grant from the Louisiana Serve Commission in the Office of Lieutenant Governor Mitchell J. Landrieu.
