Saturday, April 19, 2008 » This year's grand opening featured an Earth Day Celebration. There was plenty of activities for the kids to take part of during the event. The first 100 kids to enter the park received a Wild About Earth Day Educational Activity Book. There was "I Love the Earth" tattoos available for all. There were also "Earth Day Starts with Me!" wrist ribbons, "Care for the Earth" lollipops and Earth Day pencils provided. A "Plant Your Own seeds" table provided sunflower seeds with soil and cups; courtesy of thegardenspot.com. LIfun4kids.com was also featured during the event. What better way to celebrate Earth Day than learning about the environment and animals of the world.
Earthworm Art: "Thank you again for having us at Earth day. It was a lot of fun, and we were so glad the kids liked the activity! The worms were very happy to be let go at the end of the day; we waited until nightfall in order to give them a fighting chance to burrow away from the birds!" -Lynne Nova Auletta and her mom Trish Auletta
