Instead of just one Earth Day celebration which takes place one day out of the year, we’re taking our awareness and putting it into ACTION with a month-long calendar of events in April. Here’s what we have lined up!*
Mountain Garden Kickoff & Seed Swap – Saturday, April 6th, 1-4pm, Buchanan Rec Center – Come join Evergreen area gardeners to swap seeds and learn tips and tricks from the best around! Bring seeds to swap if you’ve got ’em!
Care for the Earth Fair with EAS+Y – Saturday, April 13th, 10-3pm, Montessori School of Evergreen Marshdale Campus – Join us for a family-friendly fair to celebrate and connect with the Earth. We’ll have lots of hands-on and sensory-rich activities for kids, including yoga, visits with animals, crafts, workshops, and much more! If you are interested in hosting an activity booth or volunteering, please email us.
Let’s Celebrate Spring Treasure Hunt with The Wild Ones – Saturday, April 20th, 1:30-3:30pm, Wild Ones Forest School – Join other families in search of (plastic-free) delicious hidden treasure while spending quality time in the great outdoors! Cacti and uneven ground are prevalent so we encourage close-toed shoes. Please RSVP to Erin/Cassie at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can plan accordingly. Address is 57 S. Rainbow Trail, Evergreen, CO 80439 but we will meet at the bottom of Rainbow Hill Rd. Follow the signs posted for parking!
