Celebrate Earth Day at the sixth-annual 
World Peace Wetland Prairie Earth Day gathering  
from 1 to 5 p.m. TODAY, Sunday, April 18  
It's a very sweet affair. Birds singing, weeding, planting, bird walks, plant walks, sustainability workshop. The best part is the kids' activities.  The youngsters will build a 'fairy village' from little ceramic huts that Donna, Lynn and Darlene have prepared. The village is tucked under overhanging limbs of trees.  It will be too charming for words.

Donna and Kelly will lead a bird workshop for kids just after 1 P.M.  Live music from Still on the Hill and Emily Kaitz and many others have promised to show up to play as well. There will be bird/plant walks at about 2:30 P.M., with Paige and MaryBess Mulhollan and Burnetta Hinterthuer. You might bring a finger-food potluck if so inspired.  It's a community event from OMNI Center for Peace, Justice and Ecology and the Town Branch Neighborhood Association.
The wetland peace park is at 1121 South Duncan Ave. Go south on South Hill Avenue from Martin Luther King; and, after five blocks, go right on West Eleventh Street, where you will see a Heritage Trail sign. 
After crossing the Town Branch of the West Fork of the White River, the old Trail of Tears, Civil War and Butterfield Stagecoach Road curves to the left onto South Duncan Avenue.  The entry to WPWP is 100 feet south on your right.  South Duncan Avenue also connects with West Fifteenth Street four blocks south.
See you there,
Kelly and Donna and the Omni crew
