Join LMC staff for a day to celebrate our blue planet with guided, sea turtle-approved activities from 9am – 4pm! Event to include free Turtle Yard tours, restoration projects and a composting lesson with a free planting activity for all ages.
There will be several activities offered throughout the event to include the following main highlights:
Great American Clean-up
Guests will clean our neighboring natural areas from 9am – 11am to kick off the Earth Day event. Participants may meet at the back gate (like a Blue Friends clean-up) and all tools and buckets are provided as well as GAC tshirts (limited supply on a first come, first serve basis).
Educational sign installation
LMC staff and volunteers will be installing educational signage throughout the coastal natural area to the north of the center (Juno Dunes Natural Area). Free Hammock Hikes will be offered throughout the morning. Guests may sign up for these walks at the LMC Greeter Station.
Guests will enjoy a composting presentation given by an experienced naturalist that features the science of decomposition and tips on how to grow your own garden and live more sustainably.
Plant Your Own activity
Guests will be provided all tools/resources needed to take home their very own seedling at home. Featured plants include strawberries, green peppers (sea turtle favorite!) and green beans.
