Earth Day Kids’ Fest Brings out the Green
The Chattahoochee Nature Center will host their annual Earth Day Kids’ Fest, sponsored by Macy’s Foundation, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., April 12. It’s a day for the whole family to discover new ways to connect and help Mother Earth. Participants will dance and sing along with Emmy award-winning Farmer Jason, explore the Eco-Village, where local environmental groups will provide activities for all ages, and experience the wonders of wildlife in encounters with rehabilitated native friends. They can even paddle a canoe around Beaver Pond and discover nature up close.
Local food trucks will be on hand with great picnic selections. Kids can make fun eco-crafts, share the eco-spirit with watershed-themed face painting and meet eco-friendly groups that promote and share green ideas, including the Hawks, Zoo Atlanta, UGA Bug Dawgs, Stone Mountain Memorial Association, Metro Atlanta Beekeepers and others.
Free for kids that ride their bikes, all others $10 for adults and $6 for children. Location: 9135 Willeo Rd. Roswell. For more information, visit ChattNatureCenter.org/festivals-fundraisers/annual-festivals/earth-day-kids-fest., e-mail programs@ChattNatureCenter.org or call 770-992-2055, ext. 236.
