Earth Day Celebration Download as iCal file
Saturday, April 22 2017, 10:00am - 5:00pm
Earth Day
Earth Day Celebration
Included with admission to the VINS Nature Center
On Earth Day, millions of people are celebrating climate and environmental literacy, and you can too at VINS’ own March for Science. Walk through our beautiful campus and visit each Discovery Science Station to perform experiments, see adaptation in action, measure water quality, and take home the seeds of a wildflower garden! At each station, be sure to collect a badge for your hat or shirt and display it proudly as you march. Stop by the Hawkfly for live bird programs and learn about how climate change is already affecting raptor populations across the world. Write a message on a prayer flag, tie it up in the meadow, and watch your hopes for the environment take flight.

Award Winning Documentary - Before the Flood
VINS invites environmental and climate stewards of all ages to join us for a screening of the Award Winning Documentary, Before the Flood, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. This film, which critics have called "a rousing call to action", takes viewers on a journey around the world to witness the impacts of climate change first hand. Enjoy this free event in our newly renovated Pavilion and help us wrap up our Earth Day celebrations by highlighting climate literacy. Stick around after the film for a Q&A session with a panel of scientists and researchers.

Refreshments will be provided. This event is free and open to the public. A $10 donation is suggested.
