Robbyn's Nest Education Center will offer several programs this month.

A Recycling and Going Green program for children will be offered Nov. 6 from 2 to 3 p.m.

Tiffany Carlson, recycling education program director of the Housatonic Resources Recovery Authority, will lead the program.

Carlson has been volunteering with the organization for almost four years.

The presentation is a tutorial on recycling and requires parental support.

Children of all ages are welcome.

Some of the key points to be discussed include: how much trash we make; where our trash goes; why it’s important to recycle; what items are recyclable in this area; how we prepare recycling for collection; what happens to our recyclables; and what products can be made from items we recycle.

A dog training session for owners only will be offered Nov. 12 from 3 to 4:30 p.m.

Donna Gleason, who has over 10 years of dog training experience and is a TLC dog trainer, will lead the course.
