Free Earth Day Celebration

Come celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 22! We'll have free activities, nature experiments, resources, and games for all ages during a fun day that not only gets families outside but may even provide some extra appreciation of what makes the Pacific Northwest so special! Join us from 12-4 pm as we explore the outdoors at Meridian Habitat Park. 

This is a FREE event, but pre-registration is required for each person attending. This program will be outdoors so please dress for whatever weather Mother Nature provides this day.
