Our little village held its Earth Day celebration on Saturday. Mikro had a wonderful time. He saw stick insects at Teatown Lake Reservation's display, made a fish print, learned all about fish of the Hudson River from Christopher Letts, participated in the driftwood sculpture contest, and made some arts and crafts with recycled materials at the crafts table. Of course, mom was drawn in by the irresistible pull of art supplies, and ended up making a fish collage... Dad and Mikro took part in the beach cleanup, while my cane and I watched. We all watched the birds, and saw killdeer and a turkey vulture who landed on the beach, as well as the usual geese, ducks, seagulls and cormorants.
