Schrader Center to Provide Hands-on Activities at The Lorax Debut

Schrader Center staff will be on hand this Saturday at Marquee Cinemas at the Highlands for the opening of the new animated feature film The Lorax about a character who “speaks for the trees.” Staffers will be in the lobby of Marquee Cinemas from noon – 5 p.m. Saturday, March 3 presenting activities that include live native animals, artistic leaf rubbing, an Age the Trees counting rings contest and more. There will also be giveaways and prize drawings including one for a free week of Oglebay Institute Nature Day Camp! Activities are free and open to the public.

“The Schrader Center embraces the film’s nature-friendly message and has partnered with Marquee Cinemas at The Highlands to provide educational, eco-centered games, activities and displays for children to enjoy before and after screenings on Saturday,” said Schrader Center director Eriks Janelsins.

A portion of The Lorax ticket sales will benefit the Schrader Environmental Education Center. Visit Marquee Cinemas website for showtimes and prices. And, when you “leaf” the movie, don’t forget to discover the forest!
