Get learning all about that paper


Families are invited to get creating paper at a special session.

Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) announced a program at Kellogg Environmental Center, Derby on paper making for the entire family.

Children and adults are invited to come and explore all that is paper during a special program on Saturday, April 25, at 10:30 a.m.

Paper is a common material and has many uses. Participants will begin with a brief look at the history of paper making and learn how to use paper to make a variety of crafts.

Participants will try their hand at making their own paper. Additionally you will be able to recycle paper to make collages, pop-ups, bags, beads, cups, seed starters and other items.

Dress for mess and bring a reusable bag to take home your collection of items.


Registration is requested for this free event. For further information, directions, or to register phone 203-734-2513 or email

The Kellogg Environmental Center is located at 500 Hawthorne Avenue, Derby.
