Earth Day at Lincoln Park Zoo

Earth Day is being celebrated with an all out fervor ….

a concert….with 50 something musicians….

playing to teenagers and 20 somethings looking like they just rolled in from Haight Ashburry…circa…..1968!

what a sight….tye dye outfits….long haired elfin creatures….face painting…flower power…

weaving from booth to booth…set up to show solidarity with the environment…

Starbucks….coffee with slogans…in styrofoam cups with plastic tops….

Toyota…..hybrid engined SUVs with plastic give away license plates…

soy bars….t-shirts…..sign up to vote….

greeting cards that are recyclable paper with flower seeds inserted within …… from Chase credit cards…

Yep…Earth Day is big business….

last time I saw a combo of this kind…..Sea Turtles….at LBTS Jarvis Hall… big business….

one last observation from the zoo…this day…

it is mating season….for the animals ……  furry and feathered alike…lot’s of maternal explaining to do…

and ….fertility drugs must be rampant on the north side of Chicago where the multitude of twins in strollers were well beyond nature or ” must be something in the water”….as the old saying goes!
