Good time at Earth Day celebration

Families had fun at recent Earth Day event. The hands-on Enviroscape display in photo showed why stormwater harms lakes and streams, as well as how to prevent polluted runoff.  Children and parents also liked seeing how water easily flowed thru a porous concrete demo into a pail below.  And children enjoyed planting seeds and brought the pots home to watch their rain garden plants grow.

Other unique activities included boat cruises on Quinebaug River pond, a horse drawn trolley and stagecoach rides. The sunny warm weather was perfect until late afternoon and all were glad the rain held off.  A great Earth Day at Old Sturbridge Village!
