@Celebrate Earth Day! This global day of action sees more than 1 billion people in 192 countries participate and we want you to head to the Stevens-Coolidge Gardens to join them. This mid-day event will provide an opportunity for continued learning, making a difference today and in the future, and kid-friendly games highlighting fun ways to take care of our planet. Community groups whose missions coincide with that of The Trustees and Earth Day will be present to share ways to get involved in the community and live a greener life.
11:30AM & 1PM Guided Pollinator Walk – Butterflies, birds, bees, you can find them all in the gardens. Join a knowledgeable guide on this casual stroll through the property to learn more about our pollinator friends and why we should strive to keep our earth safe for them.
12PM & 1PM Recycle Relay Race – We know to be kind to our earth by reducing and reusing, but what happens when it’s time to discard an item? Feed them to the Recycle Monsters! Teams can test their sorting skills in this family-friendly relay race.
11:30AM to 1:30PM DIY Seed Bombs – Get your hands dirty mixing clay, compost and wildflower seeds together to plant in your own green space.
Meet your Neighborhood Earth Supporters – Local organizations will be present today to talk with you about how to be a better steward of the earth. For example, members of the North Andover Sustainability Committee, Green North Andover and the staff at Roots Compost of Lawrence.
General maintenance of the gardens – Get your hands dirty!
Earthly Causes – Write letters to your local and state representatives about the environmental issues that matter to you. Suggest greener practices for local businesses and send thank you cards for good deeds.
Clothing Swap – Bring your gently used clothing that could find a new life with someone else and take home something new-to-you! Everyone needs clothes, but making clothes isn’t exactly the kindest thing we can do for our planet. If you do not have clothes to bring, you are still welcome to join and check out what others have brought!
