Go all in with nature at the
Baltimore Woods Earth Day celebration!

Saturday, April 23, 2022
12:00 – 4:30pm

A free community event and the
perfect fun-filled afternoon for the whole family! 

Celebrate Earth with Baltimore Woods Nature Center and learn the many ways you can go all in with nature in 2022! Look for pollinators, use a microscope to see nature in a whole new way, become a bird in the migration obstacle challenge, be a citizen scientist, meet people from nature and conservation-based organizations around Central New York and get involved, and take home and plant an oak seedling that might benefit nature for 300 years! There are so many things you can do to keep nature a part of your life every day no matter where you are.

In addition to demonstrations, games, information stations, and hands-on activities, our Land Steward will be leading guided hikes for adults on an off-the-map adventure to see parts of the new 90-acre addition to the Baltimore Woods Preserve.

Check out the fun you can have with your family for free on Earth Day!
