2017 Earth Day Festival-Protect and Connect
April 8 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm| Drop in Fee: $7 individuals, $20 families
Join Audubon and Student Conservation Association as we celebrate the Earth in our 10th annual festival. Connect with nature on our trails or with our awesome festivities! We’ll have nature walks, live animals, drawings to win prizes, ‘build your own birdhouse’ kits for sale, games, mural painting, crafts, live music, and marshmallow roasting at our campfire. See Massabesic’s own live turtles and frogs up close, as well as some of McLane’s birds of prey!
Earth friendly businesses and organizations such as Smelly Hippie, Red Manse Farm, Amoskeag Fishways, The Healthy Porcupine and Seacoast Science Center, will be there to share tips and tricks on how to reduce your impact on the earth. Lunch will be for sale by Roots Catering of Hooksett. Learn how you can protect our environment today and every day.
Watch us release a Red-Tailed Hawk back to the wild at 2:30! Maria Colby of Wings of the Dawn Wildlife Rehabilitation will release this rehabilitated raptor who was found and injured nearby. (Weather permitting)
