  1. this collection of Earth Day stories is really inspiring. Thank you for gathering them and sharing them with us. These will come in handy while we (land surveyors around the planet) finish the planning and execution of Survey Earth in a Day 3D in June. This will be our 3rd year of surveying the entire earth in a single day. surveyearth.coom
