Teal Tidings - Summer 

Welcome Summer! Nature is bursting at the seems and we can't get enough of it. ME4E is fortunate to be leading quality programs for over 10 years. We have seen many children grow up with a love of nature and they will hopefully pass that on to their children.

Fall is still several months away, but we are already starting to book programs in Chicagoland libraries, schools park districts. We hope you tell your library about ME4E and make sure you check out our calendar to see where we will be next.

ME4E regularly posts on social media with tips, grants, activities and just cool things you should see and know. Make sure to follow us! We are on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Pinterest, Flickr & Tumblr. Also, don't forget to tag us in your posts and pics. We love to hear from you.
