Earth Day Celebration at DeWitt Recreation Area: cleanup, crafts, games, hike

posted by Billie Owens in Event.

Earth Day is your chance to give back to your community and take care of the Earth! Join us at DeWitt Recreation Area in Batavia for the 19th annual Earth Day Celebration and help with park cleanup from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 20.

Let's celebrate Earth Day early (it's actually Monday, April 22) and help keep the park beautiful and the habitat safe and healthy for wildlife.

Learn to make cool things from recycled materials and enjoy a naturalist-guided hike to discover the natural wonders in the park.

Enjoy wild ganes, free fun and more.

Service groups, students, 4-H'ers and Scouts can earn community service hours and meet badge requirements.

Don't miss a special presentation by the Buffalo Zoomobile from 2 to 3 p.m., weather permitting!
