    Did you know the Pima County Department of Environmental Quality offers free presentations to groups of all Noneages looking for more information about how to go green?

    Whether the topic is air quality, climate change, water quality or pollution prevention, presenters are available to speak at school classrooms, community events, club gatherings and neighborhood association meetings.

    Presentations may be geared to adults or children, and all audiences enjoy the interactive dialogue. With school back in gear, feel free to pass along the information to your child’s teacher.

    Participants might play “Air Pictionary” to learn more about air pollution. They might engage in a “Jeopardy”-style game to learn more about how climate change is affecting the Earth and shaping the future. “Little Green Riding Hood” puts a twist on an old fairytale to highlight eco-friendly living.

    From crafting rockets made out of paper, bottle caps and tape, to comparing healthy and unhealthy pig lungs, there are many activities that can open up the discussion about ways to improve the environment and public health.

    In all, 2,464 people learned more about their environment last fiscal year, through 97 different presentations.
