Atlanta Dogwood Festival's Home School Program

Friday, April 17 from 12 noon – 4:00 pm

The Atlanta Dogwood Festival welcomes Atlanta area home school students to a fun and interactive day of learning at the festival. Home school participants must be pre-registered by April 2, 2020 in order to reserve a spot. Students may attend any and all sessions. Sessions may be cancelled if less than 10 children are registered by April 2, 2020. If cancellation occurs, parents will be notified via email and/or text message to the contact information provided on the registration form.

Session #1: Follow the Garbage Truck to the Landfill
12 noon – 12:45 pm

Charm

The Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM) will help students determine what happens to household trash after it’s picked up by the garbage truck. Students will imagine what would happen if we ran out of space in the landfills. Students will learn about environmental consequences of not recycling.


Session #2: What Happens to My Trash?
1:00 pm – 1:45 pm

Science ATL will lead an engaging activity exploring what happens to the waste we leave at the curb each week, how long it takes household items to degrade, and what we can do to reduce our contribution to landfills.


Session #3: Why Is Water Conservation So Important?
2:00 pm – 2:45 pm

Fulton County Public Works

Fulton County Public Works Educators will facilitate an activity emphasizing the importance of water conservation in a world impacted by climate change. After a rain barrel demonstration, students will assemble a planter pot using recycled materials and plant their very own vegetable garden using reuse water!

From our Executive Director, Brian Hill>> What should have been a rain out in any other year, turned into a crowd dance party, in the rain, on the last day of the 85th Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival. These people got it started and it exploded from there. Thank you so much to my board, my staff, our artists, our volunteers and our vendors for making this happen and giving the city of Atlanta something to celebrate.

Our city needed this and you made it happen. Thank you.
