AN EARTH DAY PUP

Lorelai Leroy, 5, of Mandan, poses with her dog, Wolfie, made using recycled objects and entered in the 10th annual Earth Day Festival's recycled art contest. Leroy, a kindergartner at St. Mary's School in 2017, said her dog was constructed from "boxes and other stuff." Lorelai's mother, Jeannette Leroy, added that Wolfie has a lot of parts "but mostly it's post office boxes." 

In Bismarck, the 11th annual Earth Day Festival will take place from 4 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Bismarck Career Academy, 1221 College Drive.

“Protecting and preserving our natural resources is important to the citizens of North Dakota,” said Diana Trussell, manager of the North Dakota Department of Health’s Solid Waste Program. “Earth Day is an opportunity for North Dakotans to adopt conservation habits that will bring about a cleaner, safer and healthier environment for present and future generations.”

The free event will include activities, contests and giveaways. Organizations involved include the North Dakota Department of Health, North Dakota Solid Waste and Recycling Association, Coalition for Conservation and Environmental Education, Earth Day Planning Committee and Keep North Dakota Clean.
