In Loukoumi Saves a Park by Nick Katsoris, Loukoumi is disappointed to find
her park will close because no one takes care of it.
Her friends pitch in to clean up and learn to how important it is to preserve the environment

On May 4th we had reat afternoon making a difference for the environment at the Rye Nature Center as a wonderful group joined the Loukoumi Foundation planting Sycamore trees and cleaning up the center by picking garlic mustard. Kids in attendance received a copy of Loukoumi Saves a Park for their hard work and special thanks to Mary Gillick for showcasing the center’s animals. Together we can make a difference!
