Earth Day Events in Washington D.C., 2008

For all those interested, there was an article written in The Washington Post that sheds light on many events occurring in honor of Earth Day in the heart of the D.C. area. Many of the events are free, and include projects such as cleaning up Rock Creek, going on a nature walk, and exhibits targeting recycling in Maryland, such as the “Trash People” exhibit which showcases 50 life-sized statues made out of our trash. There are also fun contests, such as a ‘recycling race’ to separate trash from plastic. This can be a great way to learn more about the environment, more about recycling in Maryland, and a great way to make an effort to make our area cleaner and more aware about our environment. These events provide a great opportunity for the environmentally concerned to become involved locally, and will hopefully also provide insight and information to even those people not as concerned about recycling in our communities and our local environment.
