Top Earth Day Celebrations in Our Region

By Michelle Kopkash

Earth Day is a special occasion to teach our children about leaving the world a better place. Not only can we draw attention to the beautiful world around us, but we can teach our children about ways to protect the earth as a way to show love to future generations. This April, celebrate Earth Day by taking your family to one of these educational, enriching events.
