“Every day can be Earth Day,” is the message Wendy Wolford, Bok Tower Gardens Education Coordinator, has conveyed to the many exhibitors participating in the 2013 Earth Day Celebration. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, May 2nd from 9am to 12pm at Bok Tower Gardens with over 25 exhibits from Central Florida. Our Earth Day Celebration is planned for the first week of May to better accommodate our local schools due to testing schedules and their availability for student field trips.
Last year’s event hosted over 1000 visitors who learned more about nature as well as discovering ways in which they could make a difference in preserving, protecting and appreciating the earth. While geared towards elementary and middle school age students, the 2013 Earth Day Celebration will showcase exhibits and vendors such as Lake Louisa State Park, Florida Fish and Wildlife, Gatorland, Central Florida Ecotours, Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, Swamp Girl Adventures along with many other local opportunities to encourage exploration and conservation of our natural world, offer hands-on activities and experience interactive learning that can be enjoyed by all. The Earth Day Celebration serves to further our educational mission and share Edward Bok’s legacy of preservation and conservation.
The event is open to schools, home education groups and the general public. The cost for students is $6 with reserved groups receiving two free chaperone tickets for every 15 students. General admission fees apply to non-group visitors.
