|The 2006 celebration of Earth Day was held during the Learning Ministry hour on Sunday, May 7, 2006.
Thanks to Kelsey Lloyd for some of the pictures used on this page.
The 2006 celebration of Earth Day took its theme from Genesis 1: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.... God saw that it was good.” Focussing on the sacredness of creation, the organizers provided resources so that both children and adults could grow in their understanding of our home and God’s Creation.
In Isenberg Hall, Beth Flint, Ph.D., a seabird biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, made a presentation about some birds who are our neighbors. One particular neighbor is the White Tern that can be seen flying above our church as it comes back from its morning feeding down at the ocean. She also spoke about another ocean bird, the Laysan Albatross, as well as our favorite local Hawai‘i–Alaska navigator—the Golden Plover. To make this brief summary of our birds more complete, we heard about the native forest bird, the Po‘ouli, the last individuals of which have not been seen in several years.
