The Greensboro Public Library, Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department and the Greensboro Science Center (GSC) are teaming up to honor Earth Day’s 50th Anniversary at Greensboro’s Earth Day Celebration. This free, community-oriented event will take place at Country Park on Saturday, April 18, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Greensboro’s Earth Day Celebration is designed to encourage members of the community to learn about – and adopt – sustainable practices that will help care for the Earth. Guests will be invited to discover nature as they explore trails, meet live animals and learn about sustainable gardening.
Dozens of ecological organizations will be on hand with displays and hands-on activities highlighting everything from alternative vehicles to earth-friendly science spotlights. Live music, hayrides, food trucks and family-focused games and activities will enhance the celebratory atmosphere.
Martha Regester, the GSC’s VP of Education, says, “Fifty years is a milestone for Earth Day and we’re looking forward to the next 50 years of caring for this planet’s resources. Country Park’s trails and accessibility are a true Greensboro gem and we are excited to have so many area partners sharing their expertise with families.”
Guests are encouraged to enter the celebration at Jaycee Park, located at 3802 Jaycee Park Drive. Admission is free. Learn more at www.greensboro-nc.gov/earthday.
