About this Event
Who this In Person Event is for:
Ages 2 -12. Adult caregivers are required to accompany child participants. Siblings of participants outside this age range are welcome, but may find the event to be less meaningful and fulfilling.
What you'll be doing:
Earth Day is a wonderful opportunity to show our youngest generation the importance of caring for our environment. Sponsored by Amazon Web Services, Grange Insurance, and Hexion, we invite you to join us for our Kids as Planet Protectors: An Earth Day Celebration and together we can teach our youth how to be kind to the physical world we all share—and create a greener future for us all.
In partnership with the Grange Insurance Audubon Center, we will have multiple projects to help kids take action in protecting our environment and investing in our planet’s future. Activities will include: nature-themed art exhibits, wildflower seed balls, bird seed feeders for Ohio Wildlife Center, tree planting,* learning about composting and renewable energy, upcycling activities, a scavenger hunt, window clings to prevent bird strikes, and more. Nonprofit partners, including Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks, Franklin Park Conservatory, Friends of Olentangy Watershed (FLOW), Ohio Wildlife Center, YAY Bikes!, Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO), and Worthington Partnership Green Team, will be on site to educate kids on a variety of environmental stewardship actions.
Note: This event is larger and busier than our standard Seeds of Caring events. Families are invited to travel to various activity stations at their own pace.
*morning session only
