Earth Day on the Square will be held Wednesday, April 22nd. A program will be presented from 11:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. followed by Community Environmental Booths for Students from 12:15 p.m. until 1:30 p.m.

R. E. Baker Elementary students are presenting their fourth Earth Day on the Square in Downtown Bentonville. The entire student body ranging from kindergarten through 4th grade will enter the Square led by a band. The students will gather to hear from our community leaders who will speak about the importance of Earth Day and will recognize the programs the students have implemented throughout the year. R. E. Baker students have earned state recognition as well as a Governor's Proclamation for their sustainability programs.

The community is invited to share this experience as R. E. Baker students use poems and songs to reflect on what reduce, reuse, and recycle means to them.
