Earth Day in Sheridan.

Mother Nature kicked up her heels Friday afternoon forcing the Earth Day festivities inside.

Sheridan Earth Day organizer Brad Mohrmann gave a rundown of what participants could expect.

Wall-to-wall vendors filled the RENEW bus barn and Shanon Short, coordinator of the City of Sheridan’s recycling program stresses the importance of recycling.

There was something for everyone with educational booths from organizations like Wyoming Wilderness, Green Steps, and Trout Unlimited.

Booths explaining wind and solar energy, the City’s recycling program, and energy efficient heating systems were there.

There was even a booth explaining the benefits of using cloth diapers versus disposable diapers. It takes 20 trees to diaper one baby in disposable diapers for two years and Sara Phillips of the B Green Diaper Service, a new enterprise coming to Sheridan in June, explains.

This is the 41st Anniversary of Earth Day, a global effort to educate and mobilize people worldwide to protect and appreciate the environment.
