TurfMutt – Saving the Planet, One Yard at a Time
TurfMutt is an environmental education partnership with scholastic that teaches children, their parents, teachers and homeowners the importance of properly caring for plants and grasses, shrubs and trees in their communities, backyards, parks, and school grounds. TurfMutt and his team of superheroes, the Outdoor Powers, are on a mission to Save the Planet One Yard at a Time by showing families that our individual greenspaces should be appreciated, understood and cared for in a sustainable way.
The Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) launched TurfMutt in 2009 in order to reach and influence consumers about lawns, landscapes and other green spaces.
After reaching more than 38 million people to date, TurfMutt has entered into a new partnership with Scholastic Education, the world’s largest publisher and distributor of children’s books and a leader in educational technology and related services and children’s media. Based on a real rescue dog, the TurfMutt curriculum offers free classroom resources for fostering an appreciation of the environment and green spaces through scientific investigation, activities and experiments. TurfMutt brings its education program to partnerships with government agencies and industry partners such as the EPA, U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools, U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s Connecting People with Nature, USGBC’s Center for Green Schools, Outdoor Alliance for Kids, ClimateChangeLive and more!
