Schools are back in session for 2015/16. Iron County Schools have a great opportunity this year to partner with GAF Manufacturing as an option to use for recycling. GAF sends their recycling to Salt Lake once a month and is providing gaylords at their plant for schools to take their paper, plastic, metal, cardboard, and glass. If you would like more information contact Susan Leslie at 865-3756 or email her at email@example.com.
The SOP is also partnering with The Cedar City Library in the Park, the Iron County School District, the Orchestra of Southern Utah and SUU to host a STEM Festival February 12 and 13th and Festival Hall. This event will be open to all 3rd and 5th graders on Friday and to the general public Saturday. The Orchestra will have performances both days as well as many booths that will focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Flier STEM Fest
The SOP hosted a booth at the Zion Music Festival September 25th and 26th. The message of the booth was to encourage visitors to take the go-green pledge and be more conservation minded. We also provided information about the SOP partnership, green teams, area information, Leave no Trace, and Tread Lightly.
