Each time I hear "Earth Day" uttered, I can't help thinking about California Senator Dianne Feinstein's pronunciation of earth as "urff" and laugh.
One nice thing about Earth Day, people do get some benefits out of the observance. Such is the case with Grand Canyon National Park.
The Arizona Daily Sun reported:
Grand Canyon National Park invites the public to celebrate the 48th anniversary of Earth Day during National Park Week fee-free day on Saturday, April 21. Visitors can participate in Grand Canyon's Earth Day celebration at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center Plaza near Mather Point from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. All Earth Day activities are free and open to the public.
This year's Earth Day celebration will feature displays with information about current park conservation efforts and initiatives including water conservation, waste, recycling, composting, dark skies, smart transportation and biofuels.
