Earth Day Weekend Events

Okay, there is a lot going on this upcoming weekend! It is Earth Day, after all! I hope you will be able to come to an event…or two!

There are several cleanup events in Glen Echo to remove invasive plants. If you go to the link below and type in “Glen Echo” in the search engine, you’ll pull up three different events. LOUA’s event is in Glen Echo West from 9am to 1pm; call Pete if you have any questions (261-0092). We’d love you to come help clean up our ravine. The pictures to the left show just how much a few volunteers can accomplish in a few hours. It really makes a difference for the native plants and critters.

There are two events on Sunday:

  1. At 10am, we are having another tree planting of understory trees in the Arboretum. Meet at the LOUA kiosk and we’ll have all that you need to place a little green to the planet!
  1. At 2pm, there is another tree walk. Meet at the kiosk and take a journey among the trees to learn all about their wonders!

And finally, I want to remind you about the special event we are going to have on April 27, 2013: BioBlitz! It will be in the Glen Echo Ravine from 8am to 8pm. It’s a chance to learn all about the various bugs, birds, and other living creatures of the ravine. We’ll have a bunch of experts who will look at what you find and tell you what it is, what it eats, what it does. I’ve attended a few bioblitzes, and they are fun. I found and saw so many things – it was amazing. As I get more details (a schedule of events), I’ll post them here.

Until next time!
