“Paw Patrol’s” Rocky will be at the Louisiana Children’s Museum on Sept. 9 for a day of fun and information about the environment, plus an electronics drive.
The Environmental Rescue will have programming and activities for all ages to help instill practices for reducing, reusing and recycling. The museum, which has a focus on sustainability, will share information on the personal impact people have on the environment as well as things families can do at home to reduce their carbon footprint.
Rocky and Skye, two of the characters from the Nickelodeon show, will be available for photos.
At the museum, guests can participate in a can drive with interactive crushing activity, play in a recycled cardboard box village, learn about collecting rainwater and find out about composting at home. Glass Half Full, which turns recycled glass into sand and gravel for coastal restoration, will provide information on establishing a grassroots program.

A ticket to the event is not required to participate in the recycling.
