About 280 Upper St. Clair kindergarteners from Baker, Eisenhower, and Streams Elementary schools, and about 20 more walk-ins from the community, attended Upper St. Clair Public Works' second annual open house on Tuesday, May 22.
The children were thoroughly entertained watching how the machinery works, learning about recycling, planting their own marigolds to take home and helping to plant fruit trees.
Public works employees invited the children back throughout the year to see how their trees are progressing in growth.
Parents, teachers and volunteers also said they learned a lot during the open house. Some didn't know all the work the department performs in the township. Others were intrigued during the recycling education presentation. Did you know you could recycle pizza boxes as long as they're not greasy?
