Earth Day Texas 2016

Trammel S. Crow sure knows how to throw a party!  He, along with his awesome Earth Day Texas (EDTx) staff, hosted their sixth annual Earth Day Texas festival at beautiful Fair Park in Dallas on April 22-24.  The world’s largest green expo beat its previous attendance record attracting over 130,000 this year with its high-profile environmental speakers, 1200 exhibitors, petting zoo, NASA’s interactive mobile display, landscaping workshops, LEGO’s Build for Change building area, tiny houses village, and three days of perfect weather!  And, we were there!  We read My Happy Earth to so many children eager to learn how to protect their environment, as they created their own drawings of their happy earth on reusable canvas bags using all the colors of a rainbow fabric markers.  It was an awesome weekend full of fun activities, creative art, learning how to protect our Earth and just being together under a huge shade tree in the park!
