‘Boro Earth Day Celebration

by |

Earth Day is a great day to immerse your children in activities that help the environment and this annual event is chock full of fun for everyone!

Teaching kids about how to save the Earth is even more important now than ever. Especially with the eminent closing of Murfreesboro’s landfill. Celebrate Earth Day with your family during Murfreesboro’s 15th Annual Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Families are invited out to this free event held on the historic public square in downtown Murfreesboro. This year’s theme is “Recycle, It’s Our Future.” The idea behind this theme is to help families understand ways they can help the environment on a daily basis and how to contribute to waste reduction and recycling in the community. Recycling is essential for a healthy environment and clean planet. You can also learn how to reuse materials and encourage your friends and family to recycle, too.

Earth Day Fun

Along with learning about Earth Day and recycling, families can also learn about how they can help the honey bees. The Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee will have a fun presentation on bees! In addition, you’ll find kid-centric booths and activities like inflatables, seed activity, exploring a local Fire Engine, a spin the wheel game for prizes and more.
