Solano County’s original environmental superhero, Bilgee, is back in school this spring.
Bilgee is visiting third-graders to talk about the water system and get their ideas on a new superhero who will help get children involved in protecting Solano County’s water quality, according to press release from the Solano Resource Conservation District.
Bilgee was created by the district, which is under contract with the county to provide the education component of its CalRecycle Competitive Used Oil Grant. The project includes an effort to install oil capture devices on storm drains in Fairfield and two education campaigns to get information about used oil management to Solano residents, the release said.
