Earth Fest at Ross Park
April 22 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
As we rally behind the theme “Invest in Our Planet”, organizations from across the Southern Tier will come together at Ross Park in Binghamton to provide opportunities for children and families to learn about the importance of investing in our planet on April 22, 2023 from 10AM-2PM.
During this special event, children and families will be able to take nature hikes, learn about birds, and make bird feeders. Special sessions will be offered on making recycled art, turning t-shirts into tote bags, and planting sunflower sprouts. Participants can also learn about saving the endangered monarch, conduct bug investigations, and enjoy a chainsaw exhibition by Mark Watson as he creates art from a fallen tree.
Partners for Earth Fest include: The Discovery Center, The Ross Park Zoo, Waterman Conservation Education Center, Broome County Planning Department, Broome County Environmental Management, Network for a Sustainable Tomorrow (NEST), Cornell Cooperative Extension, and The Phelps Mansion.
The Ross Park Zoo and The Discovery Center will be open to the public with free admission for members and “pay what you can” for all guests.
