Washington Post: Earth Day 2010 Fun for Families

Today I have a piece in The Washington Post on a ton of FREE area activities for families to celebrate Earth Day, Saturday April 17 – Sunday April 25.

Earth Day will be celebrated with a week’s worth of activities in the Washington area

I asked my son Charlie what he knew about Earth Day and he replied: “It’s the day when the Earth gets cleaned up — kind of like the day when the recycling truck comes to your house, except for the whole planet. All the people help, even those that normally don’t think about that kind of stuff.”

Pretty astute for 6 years old (of course, as his mother, I’m biased).

And according to Kathleen Rogers, president of the Earth Day Network, which works to promote Earth Day worldwide, he’s not too far off the mark. “I can’t imagine what the world would be like without Earth Day — around this one day we get so much done!”
