Earth Day!

It all started 40 years ago this week! It was April 22, 1970; the first Earth Day brought citizens around the world out to make a difference to save the earth. I remember being in grade school and we had an entire day field trip to do hands-on water testing and learn about the environment. I never really thought about it, but it must be where and how I got my start!

So what can you do? Start today....turn off that unused light, hang your clothes out on the line to dry, don't print out that report - read it on-line, recycle your cans/bottles/newspapers, etc. Better yet, get involved with the Owasco Watershed Lake Association. Come to our next meeting on May 5th, 7pm at the Springside Inn in Fleming and learn more about how you can help protect Owasco Lake.

Also, be sure to check out the Earth911 web site for lots of "green" ideas and information on recycling.

Get out and enjoy the spring weather..............and be sure to act "green"!
