Going Green Living Friday Tips, News, and Kid Corner 4-19

Green Tip
Exercising outside can be a huge benefit to your body and mind!  I know I personally love running on trails and roads than on treadmills.  It's a great way to get some nice clean fresh air as well.  Although a nice tip to remember is to check the air quality forecast for your local area. This way you can find out if the ozone and particles in the air are acceptable for this activity. 
In The News
Discovery Cove has a new baby Bottle Nose Dolphin, born on Feb 25th. 
Would you like to help pick a his name?
FINN– Means finder. Dolphins are exceptional finders and use echolocation (echoes) to find fish and other objects.
DALLES- kenDAL +LESter – a combination of mom and dad’s names
KENT- Kendall is the Valley of the river Kent
