Mrs. Lindsey's new Candia Conservation Commission KIDS Club - the "CCC KIDS Club" - met for the first time this Monday, January 7 at the Smyth Library. The purpose of this club is to give students an opportunity to get out and bond with nature! It is the first step in helping children connect with their natural environment and natural resources so that when they become citizens in their communities, they will know the importance of protecting the woods, streams, ponds, and wetlands that they have walked through and loved.
