If you’re up for a drive to the Tyler area, the Camp Tyler Foundation will celebrate Mother Nature at the fifth annual East Texas Earth Day Sunday.  Although the official Earth Day is on April 22, Camp Tyler’s early event will be held at the 400-acre retreat in Whitehouse near Lake Tyler.

This annual observance is fast becoming a tradition for people across East Texas.  The day’s events include pony rides, bounce houses, painting and planting activities, fishing, hiking, hay rides and a photography contest.

The Tyler Museum of Art and the East Texas Camera Club will hold the second-annual nature photography contest.  Professional photographers will be on hand to offer tips on photographic techniques.

Beyond the pony rides and crafts, sponsors say East Texas Earth Day is aimed at persuading people to be more aware of nature and how it’s affected by the world’s growing population and industrial development.

Sponsors say it promotes environmental responsibility and sustainability. There will be information and demonstrations about electric cars, solar panels and high-efficiency plumbing.
