Earth Day at Science Center on Saturday

Time: Noon - 4:00 PM
Location: Maryland Science Center
When: Saturday, April 21, 2012

Join us in celebrating our home, the planet Earth.  During our Earth Day extravaganza, we’ll be exploring family-friendly ways to adopt a greener lifestyle and help conserve our planet’s resources.  Follow the lifecycle of a typical plastic grocery bag as we “Go Green for Groceries” with the Irvine Nature Center and then decorate a reusable tote bag of your own.  The City of Baltimore Public Works will also be on hand to answer any of your recycling questions.

Our green roof will be open for exploration, and discussions about the importance of plant life will take place throughout the building.  Baltimore Contained will demonstrate how to make a container garden from shoes, juice boxes and food cans and guests will have the opportunity to make a garden of their own.  Try a delicious herb from one of Baltimore’s parks as the Carrie Murray Nature Center cooks up some tasty treats and explains how we can identify edible plants.  Ruppert Landscape will be giving away saplings, the American Chemical Society will be conducting earth related chemistry experiments, and there will be plenty of other hands on workshops and live demonstrations to encounter.

All activities are free with paid admission, completely free for members.
