Children’s publisher Scholastic has partnered with the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute’s (OPEI) TurfMutt program, which has taught backyard science and environmental stewardship to 38 million students, teachers and families since 2009. The program is built around OPEI President and CEO Kris Kiser’s real-life rescue dog, Lucky, who began life as a homeless pup before finding his “fur-ever” home. New materials — including a digital storybook, videos and interactive games featuring a cast of “Outdoor Power” characters — invite children to join Lucky the TurfMutt on his mission to “Save the Planet One Yard at a Time.” Materials are free and aligned to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) standards for grades K through 5.
