Wreath-Cycled K-12 Classroom Challenge

Reduce, Reuse and Wreath-cycle!

Chicago-area schools helped deck the halls at Shedd Aquarium by making wreaths using 100 percent recycled and recyclable materials. All wreaths celebrated the same theme: At Home on the Great Lakes.

Thank you for your participation in this year's program! We hope to see you again in 2014.
