Rome, NY: The staff and volunteers at Fort Stanwix National Monument invite you to join in the 2012 Backyard Club program and learn how to "up-cycle" by turning your trash into works of art! The program takes place on Saturday, February 18 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Fort Stanwix National Monument's Willett Center.

Have you ever wondered about where your waste and recyclables end up when you don't dispose of them properly? "Up-cycle" means to use something again but in a better or cooler way.  Take a trip down Recycle Aisle and learn about "Leave No Trace Behind," then see if you can help turn your trash into a work of art. Come and share some of your ideas about how all of us can recycle or up-cycle in a different way!
