Dear Utah Denizens who love your backyard,
It’s time to celebrate the super-powers of the earth: photosynthesis, erosion, lopsided seasonal tilt, volcanic eruptions, ancient sea beds that are now desert landscapes, etc. Join a billion other earth denizens who celebrate this planet that sustains us this year on April 22, 2017. Utah’s pretty rad, and your kids will raise their kids here and take them to all those places you hold dear. Let’s keep it clean. And keep it fun.
