Supervisor Daisy Morales Takes Pine Hills Students on an Earth Day Adventure Tour at Leu Gardens

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – As millions of people around the world plan to celebrate Earth Day on April 22, Orange Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor Daisy Morales held her 3rd annual Earth Day Awareness Tour by taking students from the Pine Hills community on an environmental adventure at the historic 50-acre Harry P. Leu Gardens Wednesday morning.

Orlando District 3 City Commissioner Robert F. Stuart joined Supervisor Morales in her annual celebration of Earth Day. “We’re stewards of what we’re taking care for the next generation, and we want the kids to see that,” he said. To the young and very bubbly students, he said, “Enjoy this great garden.”

Supervisor Morales was equally excited for the students’ participation in the Earth Day Adventure Tour. “For a disproportionate number of low-income, minority communities across America, Earth Day is just another day for those who live with environmental problems,” Supervisor Morales stated. “I’m pushing to put educational tools in the hands of students and communities of color that will help preserve and protect our environment, especially in Orange County.”

Harry P. Leu Gardens Executive Director Robert Bowden led the tour, which was a blend of stops that included dinosaur models which he noted were designed by a paleontologist to look as factually realistic as possible; the pollination area, where bees were busy pollinating fresh, beautiful flowers; and even a pause by the sprawling lake, where the students were overjoyed to spot dozens of fish and even a few turtles in the water near the jetty.

“We really enjoy what we do,” Bowden expressed. “I believe we’ve got the best job in town.”
