As an environmentally considerate agency, we appreciate Mother Nature. Below are several educational elements regarding Earth Day, Global Warming and good old nature.
Earth Day Network will commemorate the 40th Earth Day with a large-scale event on the National Mall in Washington, DC. On April 19th, like in years past, hundreds of thousands of people will come to the heart of the nation's capital to witness the official launch of the Green Generation and show their support for responsible, brave environmental policy that helps us face the challenges ahead. Earth Day will bring together families, adults of all ages, civic leaders, entertainers and other community members to celebrate Earth Day and share a common commitment to make greener life choices and stem the tide of climate change. During the weekend of April 17-19, Earth Day Network and our partners at Green Apple Festival will coordinate volunteer actions with tens of thousands of participants in Washington, DC, New York, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin and Atlanta. Thank you concerts for our volunteers will take place the evening of April 19.

EASTER is April 12, 2009
Several major cities plan events around the Easter holiday. Some events are listed below:
  1. White House Easter Egg Roll
  2. Afternoon Tea
  3. Easter Brunches
 The White House Easter Egg Roll is an annual family event to hunt for and race Easter Eggs on the White House Lawn while enjoying storytelling and a visit with the Easter Bunny. The holiday tradition has a long history dating back to 1878 when President Rutherford B. Hayes officially opened the White House grounds to local children for egg rolling on Easter Monday. Successive Presidents have continued the tradition of inviting children to the White House Lawn for egg rolling and other activities and entertainment.

This year’s White House Easter Egg Roll theme, ‘Let’s go play’, encourages America’s youth to lead healthy and active lives. The White House will open the South Lawn to children age ten and under, along with their families, to enjoy sports, cooking classes, live musical performances, storytelling and the traditional Easter egg roll.
