After a wet start to the summer, some of Glencoe’s youngest residents learned about water conservation during Glencoe District 35’s Summer Explorations program.

Summer Explorations started June 17 and ran through Friday, July 12. The session offered a variety of classes to local students who were looking to continue learning throughout their summer break.

During the week of July 8, a group of students from the Backyard Art Summer camp had a special visitor: Rebecca Wooley from Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago.
