UPDATE: We have made the decision to postpone the event until Saturday, June 5th due to poor weather conditions. The Nature Walk at Marbut Bend will also be postponed until June 5th
We are so excited to be able to host our annual Earth Day event this year! This year's event will look a little different and be a little smaller than in years past, but it will still be a fun event for the whole family to enjoy! We plan to provide an outdoor socially distant event at Big Spring Memorial Park in Athens, on Saturday, June 5th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. There will be vendors located throughout the park that will offer kids activities, earth friendly products, information to share, food, a petting zoo and more!
Thanks to the Limestone County Water and Sewer Authority, Steve Trash, Rockin' Eco Hero, will perform his show three times at this event (11:30 am, 12:30 pm, and 1:30 pm). Steve Trash has a wonderful way of getting the message of conservation and recycling across in a fun, loud, crazy show loved by kids and adults.
Local Author, Carissa Lovvorn, will be reading her new childrens book "Seeds For Sharing" at 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm.
Athens State University will be offering tree tours of the campus' historic trees at 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm.
Tiny Hiney's Travelin' Farm will host a petting zoo, sponsored by Limestone Pediatrc Dental.
The Optimist Club will have food available for purchase.
AT&T will be collecting old cell phones for recycling at their booth.
Thanks to the Alabama Forestry Commission, there will be free tree saplings given away at the KALB Information Tent. Saplings include bald cypress, white fringe (Grancy's Greybeard), persimmon, and red mulberries. Quantities are limited!
