Oregon Parenting Together Newsletter 

The June issue of the Oregon Parenting Together Newsletter has arrived and is about learning about recyclables. As a parent or caregiver, you have the opportunity to teach your child how to be environmentally responsible early on in life. By instilling in your child a strong sense of environmental ethics, you can provide them the knowledge they need to minimize their carbon footprint, and can help make eco-friendliness second nature to them.
