Earth Day Literature and Summer Guides Gratis!

Last week, I was at our local Earth Day fair. As promised, here is a brief annotated list of the publications I picked up there for free. There were also organizations giving out small trees and seeds of various types, as well as nature crafts, kids activites, and the travelling book bus that gives away books:

1. Eat Well Guide: given as a post card for www.eatwellguide.org. The Guide is an online food directory indlucing stores, restuarants, mailorder outlets and other venues that offer "sustainably-raised" meat, poultry,and other organic, no drugs or hormone products. You can search by zip code on the site and it is free. You can call the Eat Well Guide Coordinator, too, at 212-726-9161 or contact at info@eatwell.org.

2. Emerald Ash Borer Identification Guide handed out as a small plastic card, similar to a credit card. There is a website for this, as well, and a ruler on the back of the card for use in identification: www.emeraldashborer.infor or www.na.fs.fed.us/fhp/eab/info/info/shtm.

3. Environmental Education Guide for Earth Week, by the local Earth Week Coalition. Check your own locality for more information. Information includes Tours and Field Trips, Presentations and Activities, Educational Resources, Environmental Clubs and Groups, and Special Events. This is a nice booklet, colorful and well-organzied, that includes all kinds of museums and parks.

4. How Livestock Antibiotics Threaten our Health pamphlet by the Sierra Club is part of "The Sierra Club's Campaign to Protect America's Water from Factory Farm Pollution." Includes address forthe Sierra Club, and its url, www.sierraclub.org. It also suggests places to write to take action.
