Of the Earth

There's nothing like acknowledging that you are part of something bigger, part of an entire way of life that exists outside your home, town or state. That's why Earth Day is such a big day … it celebrates our entire planet! And this year, there will be a variety of events that highlight Mother Earth in all her glory. Some stuff worth mentioning is the 6th Annual Sustainability Expo & Lobos Growers' Market, the Celebrate Earth Day event at Hotel Andaluz and Earth Day at the Museum.
The first is at the Cornell Mall at UNM's main campus and includes fresh, local produce, music, crafts and food trucks. Now that's a fine way to pay homage to our planet. The event runs from 10am to 2pm tomorrow, and is free, unless, you know, you buy stuff. The second event is Celebrate Earth Day at Hotel Andaluz (125 Second Street NW) and is a free event that features guest speakers (including Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham), a wolf from the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and raptors from Avian Ambassadors. That event happens from 10am to 1pm, also tomorrow.
And for those who want to throw a little education into their celebrations, the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science (1801 Mountain NW) is hosting Earth Day at the Museum (again, tomorrow). This day will have “special celebrations, hands-on activities for all ages and short talks.” And that slice of terrestrial goodness is included with regular admission, which is $7 for ages 13 and up, $6 for seniors and $4 for those under 13. Festivities run from 9am to 3pm. Not bad, eh? Consult our calendars for more events happening prior to Earth Day if these aren't to your liking. But bear in mind that Earth is a lovely place to be, and that's always a reason to celebrate.

I say it's a good thing that Earth Day is in the spring. Nothing gets you in the mood to reduce, reuse, recycle and grow more than crawling out of the three-month bleak-fest of winter and awakening to the sound of birdies and the smell of crab apple blossoms. UNM is the perfect place to celebrate this quintessential spring day, what with those rows and rows of beautifully-
