Natural Cleaners for Green Wednesday Program

Wednesday, Sept. 10

Parker Dam State Park will be featuring “Green Wednesdays” throughout September.  Join one of the park’s educators each September Wednesday evening in the Environmental Education Classroom at 6 p.m. to learn methods we can each use to live more naturally, keep common toxins out of our homes, save money and reduce our environmental footprint.

Why go natural and avoid commercial cleaners?  Well, when you learn of what is contained in many commercial cleaners, you may understand.  Participants will learn more about what is toxic and harmful in many store-bought cleaners.  Then they will discover how to make their own natural cleaners to use at home.  You may even be surprised at how well these cleaners work and in some cases- work better, for your cleaning needs.
