Children’s author and Rossland resident Yolanda Ridge Authors for Earth Day visit at the Rossland Public Library was a great success.
The Grade 3 students from MacLean Elementary School voted and choose Wildsight as the organization who will receive her presentation fee as a donation.
Each year award-winning authors and illustrators schedule special school visits in honour of Earth Day. Together these participants have already touched the lives of thousands of students and contributed almost $16,000 to conservation.
Authors for Earth Day is an international coalition of children’s authors and illustrators who care about kids and nature—and the future of both. The coalition promotes environmental awareness to help young readers shape the world around them.
