Happy Earth Day!

At the Earth Day Festival…

We got free baby trees to take home and plant…

We met Smokey the Bear (who knew that he was even still around)…

We decorated pots and planted seeds (flowers and green beans)…

Made noise makers out of recycled materials…

We even made some creative abstract art from ordinary trash (a piece of cardboard, a tunafish can, a paper towel roll, a bottle cap, some paint, two rubber bands, and a few pipe cleaners.)

It was a lovely day to be outside.

Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain,
For strip-mined mountain’s majesty above the asphalt plain.
America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,
And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.
~
George Carlin
