Earth Day Parade

Children from the Children’s House Montessori School lead the Earth Day commemoration parade April 15 in Camden, with the official flag reading “We love all species.” Students from Peopleplace Cooperative Preschool and Children’s House Montessori participated in the annual All Species Parade through downtown. Dressed in handmade costumes that represented flora, fauna and various animal species, the children, along with teachers and parents, gathered at the Elm Street Playground before continuing north up Elm Street to the village green. The parade then circled back to the Montessori school, where everyone gathered to sing a few songs in celebration of life on Earth.
