SCIENCE & NATURE
Matthews Earth Day on the Greenway with Kids in Nature Day
Presented by HAWK and Matthews Park, Recreation, and Cultural Resource Department at Matthews Community Center
April 22, 2017
Join HAWK and the Town of Matthews on Saturday, April 22, 10AM-2PM as we combine two of the biggest and best Matthews spring events into one huge celebration of nature, family and fun.
The Earth Day celebration starts behind the Matthews Community Center at the 4-Mile Creek Greenway trail head and winds along the Greenway to Squirrel Lake Park. Along the way, visit earth-friendly exhibitors and take advantage of recycling opportunities, educational booths, demos, and a few freebies. There will be music, food options, and cool scavenger hunts.
Squirrel Lake Park will be "kid-central," featuring guided hikes, crafts, nature exhibits, fairy-house building, and fishing. Dress for outdoor fun and enjoy this free event. Sponsored by Williams Subaru, Healthy Home Market, HAWK, Great Outdoors University/NCWF, and the Town of Matthews.
