The 40th annual Earth Day is Thursday, a good time to spend a couple seconds thinking about the environment we share.
Earth Week for me began with the Annual Midwest Crane Count on Saturday. It was cool and windy, but I did see and hear cranes, so it was a good time. Sunday, I borrowed my mom's kayak to join the Waukesha County Park naturalists and friends for a beautiful trip up the Oconomowoc River to Loews Lake. Just my second time in a kayak, it was breezy, but didn't rain like last year. Three hours of wildlife, scenery, friendship, history, exercise and fresh air. Three glorious hours appreciating Earth's goodness and recharging batteries.
There are fun activities all week at Retzer Nature Center culminating in an Earth Day Extravaganza Saturday the 24th. Kites guaranteed to fly... weeping willows guaranteed to cry. Fun concert by Tom Pease... a hike to see trees. Games, food and fire... birdsong to admire. You may want to hug a tree, but the best part is it's all free!
