Earth Day, celebrated in the United States since April 22, 1970 , is this weekend. With spring temperatures in the 70s  along the Coast, it’s the perfect time to get outside and learn about the natural world.

The Pascagoula River Audubon Center will be hosting an Earth Day Family Celebration from 10 a.m. til 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 21st. Admission is only $1 for members and $2 for non-members, so this is a great opportunity to visit the Center.

Earth Day activities include: crafts, kayaking, a scavenger hunt, planting activities, a “sidewalk sale” in the gift shop, live animals, food vendors, and more. There will be tie dyeing, so bring a shirt to dye or purchase one in the store. Visiting groups include Wild at Heart Rescue with some of their education animals and the Jackson County Master Gardeners will be conducting Green House tours and talking about native plants.

Earth Day at the Pascagoula River Audubon Center is great for kids of all ages, from toddler activities in the Children’s Nature Discovery Garden to kayaking for older students. Come on out and celebrate!
