Environmental protection and conservation is an important goal that the whole family can take action towards. Composting and recycling is a great place to start to engage little ones in learning more about the soil beneath our feet, how plants and the food we eat grows and how to prevent waste with proper sorting knowledge. Solana Center is proud to offer the following resources for young environmental stewards below sponsored by the City of San Diego.
