We visited an Earth Day celebration at Fort Detrick today. What a great event for children! There were small animals available for sight and touch learning, crafts and activities for the children, and loads of cool giveaways. My daughter especially liked the turtles and the spongy stickers!!! We live close to the base so decided to walk over. It is a bit cool this morning but the brisk walk helped to warm us up quickly.
Now that the weather seems to finally be turning for the better make sure you Get Up, Get Out an celebrate Earth Day 2011. The activites at Fort Detrick last until 2 PM. Go hug a tree, take a walk, go for a bike ride, or simply lay out and enjoy the sun!
