Since its creation in 1970, the original concept behind Earth Day remains the same: we are all responsible for caring for and improving our natural environment. In the words of Earth Day founder John McConnell, “. . . we, individually and with the help of others, seek in our jobs, buying habits, travel, land use and other actions-at home, work and play-to respect and protect Earth’s amazing web of life . . .to act as trustees of our portion of our planet.” To this end, all of us can become Earth Trustees and take a role, no matter how small, in the nurture and renewal of our earth.
Celebrate with Lake Metroparks this responsibility during our Earth Week activities featuring coastal shoreline cleanups, family activities, Eco-fairs, environmental programs, and concluding with a popular canoe and kayak race down one of Lake County’s most precious natural resources, the Grand River.
