All you folks in Connecticut and neighboring states affected by the recent deluge of rain certainly aren’t keen on even hearing that word…r-a-i-n! But when April behaves itself normally, gentle rain showers are important. Remember, “April showers bring May flowers,” as the rhyme goes. True as that may be, Mystic Seaport is going one step further. April brings new trees to the Museum’s village green. Well actually, Sprigs & Twigs, Inc., the official landscape company of Mystic Seaport, is bringing the trees. They will be planting them Thursday, April 22, Earth Day 2010. Sprigs & Twigs owners, Linda and Bill Lillie, will also teach proper tree planting techniques. Museum members and guests may even have the hands-on opportunity to help plant the trees.
This project, which occurs on the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, will be part of a
nation-wide volunteer effort, the PLANET National Day of Service.
Sounds like a great way to celebrate Earth Day’s anniversary, and, Mystic Seaport will be in the forefront when Arbor Day 2010 arrives on April 30.
