MARION COUNTY, OR – Join Marion County Environmental Services on April 22, 2023, from 12-4pm for a free community event held at Spong’s Landing Park. This year’s theme “Origins of Earth Day,” will take participants back in time to understand the push behind the first Earth Day, and provide an opportunity to celebrate today.
This family-friendly event will include interactive presentations from local agencies, terrarium building, guided nature walks, face painting, a baby goat petting zoo, arts and crafts, and more. Free ice cream from On Any Sundae will be served in reusable containers that participants will get to take home as souvenirs.
For those looking to celebrate Earth Day before April 22, Marion County Environmental Services has launched a Passport to Sustainability program. This digital passport contains 20 activities people can complete to live more sustainable lives. For every completed activity, participants will earn points that they can redeem for sustainable prizes while supplies last. For kids interested in Earth Day activities and earning fun prizes, the Kid’s Passport to Sustainability is full of learning opportunities and encouragement to get outside.
For more information on this event, including additional resources on how to help the environment in Marion County, check out the event website.
