Top Earth Day Celebrations in Our Region

By Michelle Kopkash

Earth Day is a special occasion to teach our children about leaving the world a better place. Not only can we draw attention to the beautiful world around us, but we can teach our children about ways to protect the earth as a way to show love to future generations. This April, celebrate Earth Day by taking your family to one of these educational, enriching events.

Earth Day Clean Up and Scavenger Hunt
April 27 on Lake Natoma at Negro Bar
Hosted by Bayside Adventure Sports, this activity encourages families to kayak and SUP around the lake to clean along the away. There will be boats as well.
