Learning2gether Episode 367
Earth Day was on April 22 this year, http://www.earthday.org/. But that was a Saturday, so Sheila Adams at Rye Jr. High School in Rye, New Hampshire celebrated by streaming her 10th annual Earthcast on Friday, April 21, for five hours from noon to 1700 UTC, when the kids could stream from school.

Earth Day events 2009, 2010, and 2011
I also participated in Earth Day by webcasting from the Petroleum Institute in April 2009 and 2010, and as Earth Day was on a weekend in 2011, I organized a hike to a beautiful spot in Oman where campers had left trash strewn about, which my friends and I cleaned up and carried the garbage out with us in plastic bags
For this one I filmed a special April 21 Earth Day dive video dedicated to the earthcasters at Rye Jr. High School elementary, and here it is:
