Second Annual Amazon Earth Day: Celebration in the Amazon
We planted trees in the Amazon on Earth Day because we believe “as goes the Amazon, so
do we all.” Each person's tree received a special shamanic ritual blessing for Amazon Earth
Day. The original Earth Day was co-created almost 50 years ago by the founding Executive
Director of our nonprofit fiscal sponsor, and is continuing to be celebrated world-wide. We
thank Heliconia Amazon Lodge who continues to sponsor this now-annual celebration in
the Amazon. To learn more about the power and the spirit of the mighty Amazon
rainforest, read Amazon Speaks by author Connie Grauds.
