Coming together to celebrate the modern environmental movement


May 10, 2018

Earth Day marks the anniversary of the modern environmental movement.

On April 22nd, 1970, Gaylord Nelson coordinated the first Earth Day, and Earth Day has been celebrated every year since. This year the local Girl Scouts of Mazomanie and Black Earth celebrated their Earth Day at Lion’s Park. The Girl Scouts met on Sunday, April 29th to learn more about the holiday and use their talents to spruce up our park. We started by reading “The Earth Book” by Todd Parr and having a conversation about the importance of protecting our Earth. Next we split into groups and moved on to several service projects throughout the park, including picking up trash, making bird feeders, planting flowers, and raking up pine cones. Through these efforts we showed our appreciation for our community and the nature around us.

We’d also like to give a special thanks to Hallman Lindsay Paints for their donation of the paint used to paint the picnic tables and to Trisha Passage, Sarah Watt, Becky Schuetz, Laura Ellis, and Alex Orth for help with the event!
