CELEBRATE EARTH DAY WITH FRIENDS
Earth Day marks the anniversary of the modern environmental movement begun in 1970. Each year, over a billion people worldwide demonstrate support for our planet in a variety of ways. Celebrate with Sherwood Forest Friends (SFF) on April 24 as we explore the forest and beautify our surroundings.
See nature up close and personal on one of three walks at 10 a.m. All are limited to the first 10 people who sign up and all require masks. Bring any comfort items you desire, i.e. water, snack, and comfy walking shoes or boots.
- Photography: Join photographer Greg Allikas at Beech Cove on Nottingham Rd. Bring your camera or phone and up your game with tips from a pro. Carpool if possible or walk, as parking is limited.
- Spring Wildflowers: Botanist Susan Goldsworthy will meet you at the Barn and lead you to Greenwood Trail. Discover the fleeting beauty of spring in bloom and bud.
- Family and Kids Stroll: Interpreter Eric Young invites hikers to experience nature through their senses. Enjoy the wonders of the woods in some unique and fun ways.
Later in the day, kids (and parents, too) are invited to gather at Studio 276 to make an Earth Day offering. Storyteller Eric Young will entertain us with lively tales. Kids will plant an evergreen and flowers to spruce up Cedar Mountain for spring. Don’t miss the fun at 3 p.m.! From home, download a Sherwood Forest Friends Coloring Book drawn by Shirl Thomas from the Friends website. Meet and color some of the critters that live in the forest!
