Celebrate Earth Day with

Dr. Seuss' "The Lorax"

The 9th Annual Earth Day Celebration will be held in the 100-Acre Wood in Intervale, NH in the month of April. The 1 1/2 hour field trip will include the re-enactment of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax inside the Theater in the Wood and a visit from, he who speaks for the trees...the Lorax himself, followed by a brief discussion about recycling and some arts & crafts, and a Storybook Trail walk through the Wood. Each child will also go home with a reusable gift bag filled with educational information and fun stuff to help them start "going green".

 

"Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care. Give it clean water. And give it fresh air. Grow a forest. Protect it from axes that hack. Then the Lorax and all of his friends may come back." These are a few lines from Dr. Seuss' beloved tale The Lorax. First published in 1971, the story chronicles the plight of the environment and of the Lorax, an advocate who "speaks for the trees" against the greedy Once-ler. As whimsical as all Dr. Seuss tales, The Lorax contains key messages regarding the destructive nature of deforestation yet highlights the positive roles that every individual can play in the fight against the destructive forces.
