Friends of Uplands Park participated in Creatively United for the Planet on April 20-21, 2013. A windy day on Saturday posed a number of challenges, but sunshine welcomed lots of visitors to our tent. A rainy day for most of Sunday, so not so many visitors, but lots of chats with our wonderful volunteers. Thank you to all our volunteers who braved weather, carted exhibit materials, helped with the tent, painted faces, made owls and blue birds, made us laugh, and, created a lovely spirit of community. Here are some photos:
