Earth Day in Newcastle happened at Lake Boren Park on Saturday, April 23rd, 2011. We celebrated what’s “green”- for people, business and the environment. Bert the Salmon, King County's Natural Resource Mascot, joined us to share how we impact the health of his home, Puget Sound. Individuals, business, non-profits, and community leaders came together to share ideas and solutions to help make our lives healthier- socially, economically, & environmentally.  The day’s events included informative educational mini-seminars, kids activities, including a recycle relay by Waste Management, and a Spring Egg Hunt sponsored by Newcastle Dentistry, Newcastle Weed Warriors and Olympus Home Owners Association. Musical entertainment was provided by the Boeing Employees’ Concert Band and the Hazen Jazz Band. Eco-friendly businesses showcased products from organic body care products to solar and wind energy solutions.
