Belated Earth Day!
Earth Day is usually a pretty big deal at the Monhegan School but this year it fell during our Spring Break so we had to have a belated celebration for our Earth.
We invited community to join us for our annual Earth Day clean-up of the island.
We started at Fish Beach... which always needs a little spring cleaning!
We had a small crowd this year but that did not stop us from finding LOTS of trash!
Trash bags ready! GO!
I always like to document the MVP trash collectors who go deep into the brush and bushes to get all the island garbage!
Even Stanley the dog came out for Earth day!
Most of the time our eyes were downward looking for trash... but when we looked up we saw yet another sign of Spring... can you see the bird's nest?!
Quinn's find of the day... a pink sword! SCORE!
Millie is a FANTASTIC trash collector!
Making our way through town...
Oh man, Dalton is going for the MVP award!
My bag was EXPLODING with trash!.
Miss M had to take a break! She was working hard.
And back into the pricker bushes Dalton goes!
While Quinn and Millie supervise!
We ended at the ball field and Millie found an old whiffle ball! Another great find.
Now our island is clean and ready for spring!
