Want to teach your young children about the importance of sustainability and environmental impact? Well, the West Michigan Environmental Action Council (WMEAC) has found a fun and family-oriented way in which to do so.
They will show FernGully: The Last Rainforest at Wealthy Theatre on Wednesday, April 4. The film, part of the WMEAC Film Series, is presented in partnership with the Wealthy Theatre Centennial Capital Campaign, which works to reduce the facility’s carbon footprint and enhance existing technologies, ensuring its sustainability for decades to come.
It’s an educational opportunity that kids and parents will both appreciate. The movie will screen at 7 p.m. with free treats and giveaways for kids and kids at heart before the film.
“FernGully is meant to be a fun event that will introduce kids to significant environmental issues in a way that will be entertaining for them,” says Jen Shaneberger, chair of the WMEAC Events Committee, which organized the series. “It’s an environmental favorite for parents that their kids can now enjoy watching too.”
WMEAC brings FernGully: The Last Rainforest to the Wealthy Theatre in partnership with Moms Clean Air Force, a band of moms (and dads) fighting for their children's right to breathe clean air, founded on the principle that moms have passion and power -- an unbeatable combination. The initiative is harnessing the strength of mother love to fight back against polluters.
A $5 donation per adult is suggested for film entry. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Be a do-gooder and join WMEAC at the film. And, here’s how to get more involved:
