Litter Timeline Project

The Litter Timeline pilot project was developed and launched in the fall of 2013 as a hands-on way to educate and engage youth. The Little Timeline is an educational tool that assists youth aged 12-14 to better understand the concept of biodegrading. Students will are asked to estimate the amount of time required for different types of litter to biodegrade and then physically place the items on the life-sized timeline. This fun activity-based approach engages students and produces an exhibit that can remain on display in the school for the remainder of the year.
