Celebrate Earth Day!
Wed, Apr 22

The 50th anniversary of Earth Day is Wednesday, April 22.  There are many ways to make a difference.  Consider a move to lake-friendly lawn care or start a compost pile.  Choose to walk or bike instead of driving.  Upcycle, reuse, or donate items rather than throw them away.  Replace lightbulbs with eco-friendly LED or CFL bulbs.   Get more ideas here.
