Love a Good Earth Day!
Submitted by Cady Kaneko
Our planet is an amazing place, but it needs our help to thrive! That’s why each year more than a billion people celebrate Earth Day to protect the planet from things like pollution and deforestation. By taking part in activities like picking up litter and planting trees, we are making our world a happier, healthier place to live.
Cranford’s Troop 80 joined with Scout Troop 330 and members of the Rahway River Watershed Association along with dozens of other community organizers and participated in the comeback of Earth Day Rahway River Cleanup 2021.
But it was not all work… scout Arthur Kennedy said, “It was fun being outside with friends and we got to get messy for a good cause.” Groups focused on areas upstream and downstream of the dam at Winfield Park.
Of course being out in nature’s habitat will have it’s own visuals. Luke Tadros of troop 80 saw a duck laying on eggs. A peaceful sight that the earth does keep calm and carries on.
