WE CONGRATULATE: Our Earth Day celebration

-A A +A

Shelbyville/Shelby County Parks and Recreation’s Earth Day celebration is quickly becoming a highlight for the year.

Even on Easter weekend, a large crowd turned out to investigate some of nature’s wonders and learn about conservation and recycling.

We especially like the concept of including a time for residents to recycle those old computers – and that the recycling company is responsible enough to trash the hard drives. As computers continue to take over nearly all aspects of our lives, it’s important we find a way to safely dispose of them and the information they contain.

From tiny bugs to salamanders and bees to raptors, it’s fun to investigate the more unusual animals out there.

We are big fans of Mother Nature and learning to enjoy everything she has to offer with a focus on making sure that she’s around for the next generations.
