Inspired by the Earth Day Transportation Above & Beyond Challenge, I have created Watchung's First Annual Earth Day Walk-Around-the-Lake! Knowing that not many Vermonters will be in Watchung tomorrow, I've posted my event on the Watchung Neighborhood Network Facebook group (with nearly 1000 members). The idea is to raise awareness - people enjoying natural beauty on Earth Day are people one step closer to working to save the planet.
Here's the text of my FB post:
Come out and celebrate Earth Day tomorrow with Watchung's First Annual Earth Day Walk-Around-the-Lake!
Invite your friends, bring your family, or just enjoy a few moments of solitude. A walk around Watchung Lake is about 1 1/4 miles. Magnolias are blooming, daffodils are blooming. Are the cherry trees on the north side of the lake budding yet? What are the apple trees on the south side of the lake doing? You may spot some minnows or a frog.
Come enjoy our beautiful lake in our beautiful town on this beautiful planet!
I included a nice photo of Watchung Lake.
My FB post was garnering "Likes" within minutes, so I expect that the event will be a success!
