Give Mother Nature a Break

You’ve probably heard the alarmist statistics about the swiftly approaching demise of the Earth. We’re treating the planet poorly and our lifestyles are evidence of our guilt. And no, driving a Prius does not exempt you. Once a year, groups of Earth’s inhabitants gather in remorse. On Earth Day, we plant trees, feign interest in honeybees and rescue puppies. If you’re looking for contrition with a bit of fun, Oak Cliff Earth Day takes place 12-5 p.m. Saturday at Lake Cliff Park, 1200 N. Zang Blvd. The third annual Mutt Strut costume contest starts at 1:45 p.m. Admission is free.
Sat., April 12, 12-5 p.m., 2014
KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
