WASHINGTON (AP) — Earth Day is this Friday and environmental activities are being held across the region this week to raise environmental awareness.
In Washington, the U.S. Department of Education will be talking about environmental literacy. Panelists at a discussion Thursday at department headquarters will discuss what defines environmental literacy, how it is being taught and resources for teaching environmental issues. An Earth Day “Party for the Planet” is scheduled for Friday at the National Zoo.
In Baltimore, Green Week activities are being conducted all week.
Meanwhile, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley heads to BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport Friday to announce the installation of electric vehicle charging stations at the airport’s Daily Garage.
