In honor of Earth Day 2017, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Department of Natural Resources, and the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development held a poster contest for Michigan 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.

All proceeds will go towards Fenner Conservancy, the non-profit organization that manages Fenner Nature Center, in partnership with the City of Lansing.  Funds will go to the Norris Ingells Education Fund for Youth.

Cost: $12 per package of 12 greeting cards
