Published: Saturday, March 23, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

CARY – To plant seeds of environmental awareness in the community, The Goddard School, 801 Georgetown Drive, Cary, is hosting Root for Earth, a week-long celebration of conservation that features a variety of activities to promote a healthier Earth for future generations.

The celebration kicks off on Earth Day, April 22, with a flip of the switch at 10 a.m. for “Light’s Off.” Goddard School children will join nearly 400 Goddard Schools nationwide in turning off all nonessential lighting for one hour.

In addition, the children will participate in environmentally friendly activities throughout the week.

Root for Earth provides an opportunity to teach children about environmental issues early so they grow into environmentally conscious adults.
