I would add to the recent story on activity at Reed Creek Park on Earth Day the fact that both of my favorite interests were active. Outdoors we involved people in discovering the 30 or so wildflowers growing on the property, referring to them as a treasure hunt. With the help of the staff, we also showed attendees some of the fish and macroinvertebrates in the pond, and encouraged them to consider participation in the Adopt-a-Stream program as described in our brochures.
All of the participants, as noted by The News-Times' writer, were awakened to the details, challenges and rewards of our environment. We welcome them to continue to participate and learn more, as Earth Day is meant to be just a beginning. They can communicate with me further on our continuing programs.
