Program Description

Event Details

Community members of all ages are invited to our FIRST EVER Earth Day Extravaganza to learn about environmental issues and solutions in a family-friendly atmosphere.

The event will feature exhibits, presentations, storytimes, a plant swap, and even a pop-up produce stand from our friends at the Junior League of Lancaster! Our host of eco-conscious contributors and entertainers will educate, empower, and inspire our community to welcome environmental-sustainability practices into their daily lives.

Children will color the inside bottom of an egg crate. This becomes a Nature Scavenger Hunt with children finding different natural objects that match the colors in the egg crate.
