Earth Day Celebrations 2012

Let’s Celebrate!
April is a great time to celebrate nature with both Arbor Day and Earth Day all in the same week. Why not stretch out your celebrating for the whole week? Today Alicia from La Alicia will share with us all the Earth oriented festivities going on around Dallas to help us get our nature and spring celebrations going!
Arbor Day
Arbor Day is April 27, 2012 and is a great opportunity to appreciate trees. Celebrate trees and all the benefits they give us - shade, lumber, paper and places to build tree houses. You could plant a tree in your own yard or find opportunities to volunteer as a family here.  Download a Celebrate Arbor Day Guidebook here to get ideas about different ways you can celebrate.
