Our planet is priceless! On Sunday, April 23, come to Brookside Gardens to celebrate Earth Day and learn ways to keep it healthy. Discover how small changes in your everyday habits can make a big impact on improving our environment!
Join us in the morning for a volunteer project in the gardens. The afternoon offers something for everyone: a green craft fair, a plant sale featuring natives, non-profit educational vendors, family activities, interactive drum circles, tours of the Gardens, and more. Our Earth Day Festival this year is held in conjunction with Brookside Nature Center, and activities will be held at both locations.
Hope to see you there!
