Everyday is Earth Day on the web
Earth Day may be over but you can still celebrate it on the World Wide Web.
Earth Site could be considered the "official" Earth Day Internet location. It features the writing of John McConnell, the environmental activist who founded the annual event.
You can learn about the history of Earth Day, read McConnell's ideas in his "Earth Magna Charta" and browse a list of 100 links to environmental sites on the World Wide Web.
At "Wired for Conservation," The Nature Conservancy's new Internet site, you can visit the canopy of a Peruvian rain forest, observe a herd of Bison in its native habitat or listen to what a Prairie Chicken sounds like. A world map will help you visit over fifty different places to learn why bio-diversity is so important.
And, if you missed out on a chance this week to buy something from the estate of Jackie Kennedy Onassis why not try your luck at The ArtRock Auction.
A fund-raiser for the Save the Earth Foundation has 120 signed rock and roll posters, prints and other memorabilia. Until May 20, you can also bid on a series of prints done by the late Grateful Dead leader Jerry Garcia.
