Three days before Earth Day 2017 we look at several efforts to build momentum for a healthy environment. Up first, Carl Simon, interim director of the environmental watchdog group “Blue Water Baltimore,” tells us about a host of activities for Earth Day, from down-and-dirty trash removal to fledgling trees and flowers for planting. 

Then, Goucher College will screen the documentary “City of Trees,” which features a job training program in Washington DC. The training centers on urban forestry, and participants are tasked with beautifying neglected parks. We hear from filmmaker Brandon Kramer.
