Have you found the books Clark gave to elementary school libraries? This year’s book is Drop: An Adventure through the Water Cycle

Just as the way we treat other people reflects our personality, the way we treat the environment reflects who we are as well. At Clark Public Utilities, we feel we have an obligation to protect our community from activities that lead to environmental degradation whenever possible. Taking these steps today will help protect the health of plants, animals, and humans.

It is everyone’s responsibility to take care of the Earth and make it a wonderful place to live. No matter how old we are, there are many things, big or small, that we can all do to make a difference. Helping out the environment can be anything from volunteering at events and even learning about the plants, animals, and watershed in our community and sharing our knowledge with others. Together we can make a difference! So come along as we explore the world around us.
