Operation EarthWatch is an environmental action program for City of Falls Church elementary school students at Mt. Daniel, Thomas Jefferson, and St. James. The program is organized by the Education Task Group of the Environmental Services Council of the City of Falls Church and was established in 1993.
Participation runs from October through March. During these months, a child performs activities at home that demonstrate Earth stewardship in the following categories: recycling/reuse, waste reduction, energy conservation, nature care, and water conservation. Students are welcome to participate at any time during the school year; however, if a student takes part for all six months, s/he will receive an Operation EarthWatch T-shirt and have the option of marching with our group in the Memorial Day parade.
Students who participate for K-5 at Mt. Daniel and Thomas Jefferson, or K-6 at St. James, will have their names placed on a plaque sponsored by the Lions Club and displayed at their school.
Civic organizations and businesses in the City sponsor the purchase of our T-shirts!
