Sons, Daughters see work on Earth Day
NATICK, Mass. -- Bring Your Daughters and Sons to Work/Earth Day is scheduled for April 20 at the U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center (Natick).
The event encourages employees to introduce their children to an actual workplace and to portray the Soldier Systems Center as an environment where men and women serve as role models.
The 2001 Army Earth Day theme is "Transforming the Army…Sustaining the Environment." Scheduled events were chosen to inform participants on some of the many possibilities available to them to help protect the environment. Earth Day will begin with a tree planting and seedling handout.
The New England Reptile and Raptor Exhibits with 12 live animals will be presented by Marla Lsaac. A shoreline cleanup is scheduled for May 11.
The Women In Science and Engineering (WISE) team will sponsor a program of activities for children ages 9-18 in support of Bring Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day. Activities scheduled include a tour of the Climatic Chambers, Parachute Shop and several demonstrations.
Natick is part of the U.S. Army Soldier and Biological Chemical Command (SBCCOM). For more information about SBCCOM or the Soldier Systems Center (Natick), please visit our website at http://www.sbccom.army.mil.
