To celebrate Earth Day in 1990  and  call attention to the plight of our forests,
the All Species Coalition
asked Kansas City children to bring 1800 stacks of newspaper to the city's biggest park. The number 1800 was chosen because that's how many trees it takes to produce the Sunday edition of the Kansas City Star
