Earth Month April Begins in MARCH!

I once wished that every day could be as full of wonderful events as Earth Day............................
and also I am reminded of these words to the wise "be careful what you wish for"! Below please find a list of some of my favorite events of March & April and some of the places we will be.

Come visit, learn and have fun!

Link to the Baynanza site to see events through out March and April and also select your beach or bay clean up site and organize your clean up team. Last day to register your team is March 29th.
