Tired of the snow? Spring’s not here yet, but it’s coming! Join us next month for our annual Earth Week celebration! From April 19th to the 26th, we have a week of fun, earth-friendly programming going on in our libraries, around town, and in our community’s parks. Whether your passion is gardening, birding, biking, or the great outdoors, we’ve got something for you!
If you’re ready to get outdoors after a long winter, help us kick off Earth Week with a Nature Photography Walk at Millennium Park, or come along on the Community Bike Ride as we tour Grand Rapids parks.
Gardeners getting ready to dig into spring can join us for a tour of the Rooftop Greenhouse at Downtown Market, stop into our Native Plant Sale, or participate in our Got Garden? panel discussion led by an MSU Extension Services Master Gardner.
Bird enthusiasts will find a home away from home at the Backyard Birding program, and weather and history buffs can learn about the devastating tornadoes of April 3,1956 from Grand Rapids Public Library’s Tim Gleisner and author Ernest Ostuno. Parents can learn about Earth Friendly Parenting at the Yankee Clipper Branch, or attend a pre-reading class during Earth Week to enjoy a earth-friendly storytime and craft.
Hope to see you all next month!
