Macie Geis, "Happy Earth Day"

Sunny skies and warm temperatures brought folks out in droves Sunday for the 42nd annual Earth Day. Held in South Park across from RENEW, it was a field of informative tables full of information geared towards protecting our environment.

Martha Tate, with the Wyoming Wilderness Association was there.

“Recycle...recycle...recycle”...We've all heard the mantra. Mike Knape heads up the City of Sheridan's recycling program and tells us the importance of recycling.

He also explains what happens to Sheidan's recycleables.

There was something for everyone of all ages. Kids could enjoy painting rocks, building bracelets, face painting, and join in a scavenger hunt. Building a sustainable future for our kids, the day also included a tree planting and a blessing given by John Bigelow.

Sheridan County Museum even had it's take on Earth Day. Museum Director Nathan Doerr.

Earth Day is all about creating a clean and healthy world for generations to come like Macie Geis.

The idea came to Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin.
