Clean Up Litter and Turn Your Trash into Treasured Art – April 17

El Segundo 9th-Grader, Addison, and our student team from Goethe Elementary invite you to join the El Segundo Museum of Art and the El Segundo Public Library to clean up litter and learn how to create art out of waste. It’s a fun way to clean up your community and learn how to reuse items so they don’t enter the waste stream.

Learn all about it by watching this video made by Addison, a 9th-Grader from El Segundo. Please support Addison and the Goethe team’s efforts and join their virtual presentation on turning your trash into treasure!
