Brodhead Watershed Association will join the Monroe County Earth Day celebration on April 22 offering family-friendly activities to educate kids and parents alike about issues that affect the watershed and things families can do to make a difference.
The county-wide Earth Day celebration will be held 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. that day at Northampton Community College’s Tannersville campus.
BWA will host a booth centering on the themes of native plants and green infrastructure. The new “Get Outdoors Poconos” booklet of local hiking opportunities will also debut – stop by BWA’s booth for your free copy!
There will also be a chance to win a BWA T-shirt or rain barrel.
New exhibitors will include the Coast Guard auxiliary, Trout Unlimited and residential solar vendor and installers.
The celebration will also include electronics recycling, tire amnesty, crafts, TED Talks, entertainment throughout the day and more. The Close the Loop “Give & Take Day” will occur again this year to repurpose gently used items. Last year’s popular passport activity for children will also return.
