I visited Saint Hilary School in Tiburon, CA on April 23, 2013 to celebrate Earth Day with their K-3rd grade students. I was accompanied by my apple tree puppet, TREEna, who decided to change her name to Hilary after seeing the school signage! The children voted to donate my speaking fee of $300 to the Ocean Conservancy. Their school overlooks San Francisco Bay which is fed by the Pacific Ocean.
