April is Earth Month and multiple agencies are collaborating throughout Wood County to provide events geared toward conservation, education and
family fun. The 10th Annual Community Earth Day Celebration will be the culminating event held on April 28, from 2-4 p.m.

This free family event is open to all and is filled with fun hands-on learning stations. Try your hand at archery hosted by the Wood County Park District, take a nature walk with the Bowling Green Parks & Rec Department, power a light bulb with the City of Bowling Green’s power generating bicycle, give the Solid Waste Management District’s giant Earth Ball a roll, and hold a crayfish at ODNR’s Scenic Rivers station.

Interactive games will be provided by the Northwestern Water & Sewer District, BGSU, and others. The Wood County Master Gardeners will host earth friendly activities and the Wood County Library’s CNG bookmobile will be onsite providing earth friendly stories.

The Montessori School of BG, located at 515 Sand Ridge Road, provides an ideal backdrop for this Earth Day Celebration. Enjoy 14 acres of land, visit a Learning Lab, play on the playground and spend some time at the Black Swamp Preserve and Slippery Elm Trail.

We encourage you to get involved throughout the month of April to make Earth Day every day. For a full list of volunteer and educational activities, please visit www.communityearthday.com.
