Earth Week 2016: Monday

earth-day-2016-1

 

Sunny skies and warm temperatures made for a fantastic start to Earth Week 2016. Each year, we kick off the festivities with the raising of the Earth Day Flag. Airlie's Managing Director, Kevin Carter recounts the history of Earth Day while Larry Clatterbuck prepares the flag.
