Earth Day Festival: Be Water Wise

Admission: $10 for one individual, $25 for a family
Earth Day is a time of year to celebrate the wonders of the earth and strengthen our appreciation for clean water, air and soil. Watch us release a rehabilitated raptor back to the wild and meet frogs, turtles, snakes and other animals. Learn how you can keep our waters healthy for people, plants and everything in between! There’ll be music, games, a bonfire, face painting, drawings for prizes, and activities for the entire family.
