Celebrating Earth Day

An Earth Day kick-off took place on Sunday, April 19 at the Audubon Center Boathouse in Prospect Park from 1-4 pm. Activities included fishing lessons, a mulching and garbage clean up class, button making, and a performance by Bash the Trash. Children were also able to make their own musical instruments using cardboard, plastic bottles, manila folders, and pebbles. The activities were open to all ages.
