We had a great day Earth Day at Rotary Botanical Gardens.

Thanks to Deb Grams, Ruth Flescher, Bev Drew, Mary Kay Thompson, and Nancy Moskal for staffing the booth.

According to RBG staff there were between 1500 and 2000 visitors.

We gave away a lot of herb seeds and milkweed seeds and taught a lot of children how to build pollinator hotels using recycled tin can, paper drinking straws and hand-rolled tubes made of pulp paper.

Thanks to Scott Schilling and Ethan Lee of the Janesville Urban Forest Alliance for helping us when needed.  Good tent neighbors.  And thanks to the staff at Rotary for helping us get set up.
