Kim Cumber of the State Archives pointed me toward this wonderful photo from North Carolina’s first Earth Day celebration. It’s part of the Archives new Flickr photostream, which if you haven’t checked it out, you should. At least, check out the rest of the Archives’ Earth Day photos to get you psyched up for this weekend.
