  • Green Day

    April 29th, 11:00 AM — 2:00 PM

    For Green Day at Earthplace come explore a series of science and nature themed stations throughout the sanctuary. We'll have stations dedicated to amphibians, insects, reptiles, mammals and birds at which we'll examine wild and preserved specimens. At our seed station, we'll dissect seeds to learn how they grow. And, at our science station, we'll make and launch our own alka seltzer rockets. Every station will have themed activities or crafts to bring each topic to life.

    $5 per person at this family-friendly event.
