The John Muir Earth Day festivities would never be complete without beavers!

This year children at our booth will be encouraged to design their own tails and volunteers who wear them will receive one of these special beaver chew twig pencils (see above) as a reminder of the day and their contribution!

Worth A Dam hopes to see you all there, and if you miss us at Earth Day look for us at the Girl Scout’s Fun Hundred celebration at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in May!

John Muir Association: Nominations open for John Muir Conservation Awards

It’s that time again. Time for the 32nd annual John Muir Conservation Awards from the John Muir Association in Martinez, CA. I just received the following press release:
