Community Outreach

Community Outreach 
RARE participates in community events annually such as the Salmon Festival in Oroville, the Snow Goose Festival and BEC’s Endangered Species Faire in Chico. The RARE booth at these events will be a source of recycling education and information for adults and children. Activities include crafts for kids, a recycling relay race and adult education on topics such as reporting illegal dumping, how and where to recycle used motor oil and other challenging waste types.
