Earth Day is not until the end of the month bu the Johnny Appleseed Metropolitan Park District is teaching kids that we should treat every day like it is Earth Day.

The J.A.M.P. hosted their program "Nature Pals: Every Day is Earth Day" at the McElroy Environmental Education Center. Through crafts and activities, the program aims to teach preschool age children the importance of taking care of the planet because one day they will be the ones in charge of it.

"They're the next generation that has to keep this going to that everyone can continue to survive on the planet," says Naturalist Beth Theisen. "Everything that we throw away ends up in a big landfill and it's there for hundreds and thousands of years, so there's different things that we can do to make sure that we're not throwing everything away."

The next Nature Pals program will take place on May 3, 2018, for "A Camping We Will Go!"
