Members of the Crawford County Master Gardeners wrap young white pine trees for distribution to local fourth-graders as part of Earth Day observances. A total of 201 students in nine classes in the county's four school districts will receive trees today and Monday. Earth Day, the world's largest ecological social program, is Saturday.

I used to take a busload of high school students from the community all over Europe. Then, it cost less than $800 for 10 days including the airfare, hotels, two meals a day and local guides. Of course, I worked in as many culturally and historically important venues as possible, but kids being kids they still managed to enjoy themselves.
