|Living Green Recycling Tour day trip set for Nov. 9|
This program is called the Living Green Recycling Tour and will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 9. Participants will visit the Project Living Proof House, a century-old home renovated with all the bells and whistles for living green. Explore how it was made more energy efficient with rain gardens, low-flow fixtures, smart appliances, solar, and geothermal systems. Learn how to improve you home's energy, get an energy audit, and qualify for rebates and bill credits. Enjoy lunch at a restaurant which promotes sustainable living by using locally-produced foods. In the afternoon, the group will tour a recycling center to find out how recyclables are processed. Finally, the tour will include a stop at the Heartland Habitat ReStore to see how used building materials are diverted from landfills through the sale of quality recycled home improvement fixtures, furniture, and appliances. Perform a catalog search for the keywords "day trip" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
This trip will leave at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 9, from Antioch Park 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and return at approximately 4 p.m. that day. The cost is $59 per person and includes lunch.

Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
