BERRIEN COUNTY, Mich. -- Fifth graders put their green thinking caps on Wednesday to come up with stylish ways to save the environment.

It was Berrien County's 20th annual Natural Resource Day and students showed off clothing made from recycled materials.

They also visited many different activity booths learning about practical conservation principles they can use at home.
“Each session is very different,” explained Jill Adams, Berrien County Parks Department, “some are big groups, some are small groups. It's nice to keep it fresh and do a hands on activity.

"They explained that its for our future decades,” said Bella Oldenburg, a student at Bridgeman Middle School, “we want people to be able to use resources, so by recycling we are saving up resources.”

Hundreds of students from 14 schools took part in the event, made possible by dozens of environmental professionals who volunteered.
