This is a new project that we carry out at high schools in Leon, which include different environmental activities. So far we focused on recycling projects inside the schools, in the next months in addition to recycling project we will carry out also diverse activities about fauna & flora, both in schools and at the outdoors.
We offer FREE diverse activities for pre-school children where we focus on topics like plants, animals and garbage.
We offer FREE different activities about many environmental topics; we carry out the activities in two main ways:
