In honor of Earth Day 2014, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Department of Natural Resources, and the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development held a poster contest for students in Kindergarten through grade five. The top twelve winning posters were made into greeting cards to be sold by Fenner Nature Center and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to spread the word about protecting our Earth through sustainability, pollution prevention, and recycling.
