Awards, Trees, and Medicine Take Back!

April is a busy time due to all the environmental community activities, so much so, we now call April ‘Earth Month’, https://www.springfieldmo.gov/2746/Earth-Month-2016-Activities.  As Earth Month comes to a close there are still many community events to take part in. Friday is the Choose Environmental Excellence Awards Luncheon which celebrates the accomplishments of volunteers, organizations and professionals dedicated to improving our community by choosing environmental excellence. Friday is also National Arbor Day, the annual observance that celebrates the role trees play in our lives and helps to promote tree planting and care. To learn how to plant a tree on your property and to select the proper species visit the MDC website here: http://mdc.mo.gov/your-property/seedling-orders-and-planting-guide/plan-you-plant.  On Saturday local pharmacies and the Ozarks Area Pharmacy Association will be participating in the Medicine Take Back Event from 10am to 2pm at these local pharmacies:
