Join ACT in a family-friendly Earth Day celebration with activities that are great for little hands.
We’ll be tending to seedling sunflowers, and planting scarlet runner beans in recycled containers. Everyone will have the opportunity to decorate a container and take home a baby sunflower and a bean plant for planting in your own garden. This is a great opportunity for kids to have fun, and go home with a plant that they can nurture from a tiny seedling into a big flower.
We’ll also walk along the Ammonoosuc River loop in Littleton to help clean up the parking lots and areas near the river. Gloves and bags will be provided to everyone who wants to participate.
This event on Saturday, April 18 is at the Loading Dock in Littleton from 3:30-5:00 p.m. Cost of attendance is $5 per person including all art supplies plus healthy snacks provided by ACT. Recommended ages are K-6. Directions to the Loading Dock, which is on Mill Street, can be found at www.theloadingdocknh.org. ACT staff and volunteers and Jason Tors of the Loading Dock will lead the festivities.
Earth Day began in 1970, and it is an important day that is celebrated worldwide to protect the environment. As the North Country’s land trust, forever conserving farms and forests, ACT invites you to join us in celebrating this exciting day.
