Update - Our event was a great success! It was so nice to be out and about this year after having to cancel last year's event due to COVID. Here's a few photos. We appreciate everyone who came out and visited us!

Matter Park | Marion
It's time for Earth Day once again!! This year we are determined to overcome COVID and celebrate our beautiful earth! Since we are living in such uncertain times, we are planning our event so that we can roll with the punches. Our goal is to have an in-person, outdoor event like we usually do. But if the pandemic should keep us from doing so, we will switch to an online event so that you can all still learn about the environmental issues affecting our world and what you can do to make a difference! So check back frequently for updates and lots of great content from our local organizations and businesses. We only have one planet, so let's show it some love!
