Museum Park Theater
In light of Governor Cooper’s state of emergency declaration and recommendations regarding large gatherings, this event has been canceled.
Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day by giving back to our planet! Join Museum Park staff in their initiative to restore a degraded woodland in the Park. Participants will plant native species to increase biodiversity and provide habitat for wildlife. Dress for the outdoors with closed-toed shoes and long pants, and bring a water bottle.
According to the Earth Day Network, more than 1 billion people worldwide participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world. This service project is an opportunity to participate in reintroducing native plants to the Park as part of a forest restoration project. These forest understory plants increase biodiversity and provide habitat for wildlife.
The day begins with a presentation in the Museum Park Theater and continues with a half-mile walk to the planting site. Fun for all ages. Ends at noon.
Come back later for our Earth Day film screening!
Earth Day 2020 is supported by the Harriet Jackson Phelps Conservation Endowment Fund.
