Stephens celebrated Earth Day today with an adorable ceremony featuring children from the Stephens College Children’s School.
The school has been collecting recycled goods to donate to Women of the Earth, our student environmental group.
The group, with the help of Campus Facilities, then constructed a tree sculpture and let the kiddos hang hand-made ornaments on it this morning.
All of this was followed by my favorite part of the ceremony, the children singing hilarious little songs about a favorite tree at risk of being axed down and another about a battle with a big pile of garbage. Spoiler alert: The tree won; the garbage lost.
Anyway, I especially enjoyed the event because it was my first opportunity at Stephens to show off my photography skills—which essentially means putting the camera on an “auto” setting and letting it figure out lighting, etc. for me.
Check out the tree, our little singers and the Stephens College marketing office camera’s mad photo-taking skills:
