Buying plants on Earth Day is a great way to celebrate 

Every year Emily Oaks Nature Center puts on a party for families in celebration of Earth Day. Families can come out and participate in nature-themed activities, enjoy some deliciously grilled food, and enjoy the wonderful outdoors.

This year's theme was to come out and meet the neighbors. Kids got to meet various animals and plants through activities that mimicked their lifestyles and homes. I volunteered to take pictures at the photobooth. Parents and kids got to take photos of with their favorite animal or plant of the day.

Skokie posted the photos today, so I hope you'll take a moment to stop by and take a peek at some happy faces that had fun learning about the world around us!
