Teal Tidings - Autumn 

The colors on the trees are changing, the air is crisp and fall has officially arrived. There is so much to see and explore during autumn. If you dress for the weather, you will have an enjoyable experience. After you discover the wonders of Fall, post photos and tag us. We would love to share them.

Winter will be here before you know it. We are already starting to book 2018 programs in Chicagoland libraries, schools, and park districts. We hope you tell your favorite organization about ME4E and make sure you check out our calendar to see where we will be next.

Do you follow ME4E on social media? We post tips, grants, activities and just cool things you should see and know. You can find us Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Pinterest, Flickr & Tumblr. Photos, comments, and just letting us know you like something we shared is much appreciated.
