Earth day is celebrated every April, yet here in Highland Township and Milford, Michigan there will be a very special afternoon of family fun! On Sunday, April 21, 2013 from 1 to 4pm, the Huron Valley Green Team and Carls Family YMCA off Commerce Road in Milford is hosting a free earth day event packed with activities for families, children and anyone who can attend. There will be face painting, art activities, dancing, top notch musicians, the International Academy will put on a "green" fashion show (last year there was a dress made entirely of brochures!) and there will be a wide variety of different booths with everything from how to control invasive plants to the "insect man" with cocoons, caterpillars and walking sticks, and hopefully other live animals (last year a pet corn snake was a hit with the younger crowd). This is an annual event put on by the Huron Valley Green team each year so if you missed the fun last year, I urge you to make sure you attend this year's earth day.
