Earth Day celebrated in Fox Lake
Promote Fox Lake and community organizers made the most of the second annual Earth Day Gathering on Sunday at Millennium Park.
Looking to piggyback off the success of last year's event, organizers led by Trustee Danice Moore hosted an array of speakers from environmental activists to representatives from the Citizens Climate Lobby, Pollinator Project of Fox Lake and the Lake County Audubon Society.
"People are really excited about Earth Day and helping out with the environment, being active and learning about ways they can help make a difference," Moore said.
The event featured Chicago singer/songwriter Mallory Lennon and local musician Michael Leschers. Participants also helped plant trees and seeds along the village's bike path on Rollins Road.
