Earth Day Celebration

April 22 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$8.00

Join us for a full day of activities and fun this Earth Day at Lovers Key State Park!

At 10:30 a.m., a park ranger will lead a wading trip into the seagrass flats at North Beach and discuss the many crabs, snails, starfish, and other creatures that inhabit this ecosystem.

At 12:00 p.m., Park Manager Catherine Moses will kick off our new Read with a Ranger series by reading Dr. Seuss’ iconic children’s story, The Lorax, in the Exhibit Hall at the Welcome and Discovery Center. Listeners will be given a seed at the end of the story and invited to decorate small pots to house their seeds.

At 1:30 p.m. in the Community Room at the Welcome and Discovery Center, a park ranger will lead an up-cycled craft in which participants transform a plastic water bottle into a vibrant fish of their choosing.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own bottles, but the park will have a limited number available for those who do not. At 3:00 p.m., a park ranger will close out the celebration with a beach cleanup on South Beach.

Throughout the day, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., there will be a myriad of informal Earth Day activities and educational materials available for the whole family to enjoy at the Welcome and Discovery Center.

All programs are free with paid park entry.
