PEANC Earth Day

Traditionally observed on April 22, Earth Day brings to light environmental issues and global awareness activities geared toward Earth's preservation.

The 2009 Piedmont Earth Day Fair hosted by PEA (Piedmont Environmental Alliance) took place Saturday, April 18 at Wake Forest University.

There was food, drink, music, and many "green" enthusiasts out to share, learn and gather information.
