McAllen's Earth Day
Today the Larson's and Jim and I went to Vida Verde by McAllen. (Quinta Mazatlan) It was a day mainly for families with little children, but really interesting for us. They showed snakes (ish), several tents with recycling ideas, live birds of prey, various stages of butterflies, yoga classes, demos on "how to plant a tree and design a wildlife garden. They had lots of classes for children on recycling ..... Edy and I loved the recycled jewelry ! A lady used various lids and caps from bottles, filled with glitter and very small toys, then covered with Epoxy. We saw demos on making paper! We went on a nature trail, also watched an Elvis impersonator......Quite a day.
