In Shedd Aquarium's recent wreath-cycled challenge, local classes worked together to create wreaths made of recycled materials were displayed as part of Shedd’s holiday décor. The participating teachers, students and their families were also invited to a special event on Dec. 22 to celebrate their projects and participation!
