Happy Earth Day!
Looking for some ways to celebrate this day of appreciation of our planet? The Arboretum and the EarthQuakers are hosting events all day:
It’s not too late to join the Arboretum on Barclay Beach from 11-1 to plant trees.
From 1-1:30, Dr. Seuss’s ever popular The Lorax will be read on Founders steps. The reading will be followed by a celebration with homemade cookies and other snacks, live music, games, and painting.
Tonight from 8-9:30, Bidder 70 will be screened in Stokes Auditorium.
Earth Day has been celebrated since 1970. While it is nice to have a formal day dedicated to our planet, just remember that every day is Earth Day. You can show appreciation and enjoy Earth by taking a walk on the nature trail, going for a bike ride, planting some flowers, or simply taking a nap under a tree. When enjoying the outdoors becomes important to people, they are more likely to look out for the health of our planet. Have fun outside today, and Happy Earth Day!
