2017 Projects

Ernie the Elk Puppet Show- April 2017

Each Spring, EAS+Y volunteers visit local elementary schools with a puppet show about plastic bags. Third grade classrooms and others meet EAS+Y’s Ernie the Elk and the wildlife puppet cast who tell the story of how Ernie, finding himself inexorably tangled with a plastic bag in his antlers, manages to free himself from the bag and recycle it responsibly with a little help from his friends. This puppet show, based loosely on a true story, has reached over 400 students annually for the past five years.

Scheduling for puppet shows in April 2017 is now available. The show and presentation lasts about 30 minutes. Please contact EAS+Y (link) to get on our schedule.
