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 2023! 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 learn how you can get involved! Not enough for you? Join a guided hike along the Valley Trail to soak in all the delights of the springtime forest. 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 along the new Harrison Trail to show how our restoration efforts are turning abandoned farm fields to thriving meadow habitat. 

The Earth Day Celebration is free for everyone, although space is limited. Pre-registration is required. Registration for hikes will be at the event check-in table on Saturday.

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