Metro Park Celebrates International Mud Day


Mom always told you to stay out of the mud. But not Saturday.

That's because it was International Mud Day at Highbanks metro Park in Powell. It provided kids a chance to play in the mud.

Metro Parks organizes this annual event to teach kids the importance of soil and its role in making things grow.

International Mud Day is a world-wide event. It began two years ago in the country of Nepal to raise awareness about soil conservation.
