Earth Day event a success


USBR tour guide Theresa Wilder watches as kids at the Earth Day celebration in Nespelem Friday interact with an exhibit on renewable energy, brought by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. The event "was a huge success," said Joaquin Bustamante who manages Colville Tribal Recycling. "We gave away over $15,000 in giveaway items. Food items. That's the most we've ever given out. That was a huge thing. Between what we put on and the message that everyone was giving out there, it was positive towards protecting Mother Earth."
