Earth Day

Celebrate Earth Day at the NY State Museum
Saturday, April 25 — 11 a.m.–4 p.m.
Museum Exhibit Halls - 4th Floor

Learn how to save the planet while partying with Smokey the Bear and his Forest Ranger pals (only you can prevent forest fires). This event looks like a lot of fun for the kids and it's all free of charge. See a puppet show, listen to storytellers, make a giant puzzle, grow an eco-garden, make a recycled souveneir, ride the carousel (that's not advertised, but you know your kids will want to do that too!) Find out more info here.

Can't make it to the museum? Here's are some book suggestions to bring a little Earth Day flavor to your home. Because you know what they say: Make it Earth Day, everyday! (Who's they? You know, Smokey the Bear and his Forest Ranger Pals, that's who.)
