Re: April 22,1970 to April 22, 2010! How will you celebrate 40 years of Earth Day?
Baton Rouge, LA, has a big Earth Day Festival the Sunday before the real Earth Day. There are bands playing on 3 stages, food, vendors and craft people, and displays from schools and non-profit organizations. ACS Baton Rouge was well represented by the LSU Student Chapter of ACS. The students, led by Prof. Carol Taylor, smashed flowers frozen with liquid N2 and tested the pH of household materials with red cabbage indicator. The visitors also received Nan-o-Moles and Celebrating Chemistry.
