The 2008 White House Easter Egg Roll will focus on the importance of ocean conservation to our national heritage, economy, and security. As children explore the White House grounds, they will learn about our oceans and how to preserve them for future generations. Through education and volunteerism, all families can make a difference in keeping our oceans clean.
President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush welcomes participants as Jenna Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush looks on at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll March 24, 2008 on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, DC. The annual event was started by President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1878.
