To celebrate Earth Month in April, 4-H member Rick Plenge is inviting Howard County young people to join him and his team of volunteers from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Friday, April 16. During a spring break meeting, Rick will lead a hands-on workshop of environmental demonstrations. The children will learn methods of determining the age of a tree and the vital role trees play in our environment.

Youths who attend should bring an empty two-liter soda bottle and a bag of yard waste (leaves, grass, twigs) to contribute to the existing bins in operation. Using the existing soil compost, those attending will plant tree seedlings donated by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources in the 2-liter bottles. Once at home, parents can help the children to plant the trees in their yards or at a designated site in the community.

The group will meet at Centennial Park's composting facility next to the boat ramp parking lot.

As part of his 4-H program, Rick, a Mt. Hebron High School senior, is evaluating waste management in landfills.

He has established a partnership with Burleigh Manor Middle School students in Ms. Ireland's class. One of their main goals is the management and monitoring of Howard County's composting facilities in Centennial Park. The group is planning tree plantings and other community beautification projects.

For information on the workshop, call Rick Plenge at (410) 465-7790 between 6 and 9 p.m. If you would like to reserve a spot in this fun and educational event for your child, call before April 13.

The Learning Disabilities Association of Howard County cordially invites county parents to its monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at the Media Center of Howard High School.

This month, LDA will sponsor a Roundtable Discussion for parents, chaired by president Janet Nuse. Under discussion will be the state's new policy of inclusion. Under this policy, most special education students will be mainstreamed into "regular" classrooms. Many parents of learning disabled children hold that this policy may not best serve their children, and that inclusion may also present other problems.

At the Roundtable, parents can share their own experiences with inclusion. The LDA hopes to submit a report of their findings to the Board of Education.
