Earth Day

 

continued

The parade starts with a great chorus of yells from the organizers. The children march along the sidewalk and back again; some of the very young ones look nearly frightened by the ruckus. There are several butterflies (or fairies?) and other babies with ears and tails. One child simply has what looks like sponges glued to his body, and I assume he made it at the Scrap Box table. He's laughing and carrying one of the many percussive instruments that ring out across the fields.

We make our way to a very pretty little island to hear Joe Reilly sing children's songs. He reminds us that every day is Earth Day and sings clever songs about birds, mammals, trees, and of course the planet. "What can we do every day for Earth Day?" he asks and has us sing along. "Recycle, plant seeds, use only what you need, help others to see how bright nature can be."

This year's Earth Day celebration will be held at Leslie Science Center on Sunday, April 27.
