Earth Day

April 22, 2017 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Outdoor activities free; museum admission still applies for viewing exhibits.

Get your feet on the ground and put your hands into action!

Celebrate Earth Day at Columbia Gorge Discovery Center, Saturday, April 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Take a native plant walk with Barbara Robinson and hear about the restoration project of planting and selective weeding that revived the 54-acre museum grounds.

Kids can enjoy hands-on crafts that will celebrate the earth and teach them to be a good steward of the earth.

Meet with representatives from Tri-County Waste and Recycling. Rowena Wildlife Clinic will be on hand to share how they heal and rehabilitate wildlife to return injured animals to their native habitat. Learn about OSU’s Master Gardening and composting program, and learn about the Master Naturalist program for volunteers interested in Oregon’s natural history, ecology and natural resources. Friends of the Gorge will be here to talk about the awesome spring hikes scheduled for this upcoming season. Oregon Zoo’s Non-Lead Hunting Education Director will inform you about the importance of keeping lead out of our wildlife environment. Keep checking back because more organizations are joining us every day!

Enjoy a soup and sandwich lunch bar in the Basalt Rock Café, and get your feet on the ground and put your hands into action for this fun day of outdoor activities.

All outdoor activities are free of charge; regular admission still applies to view the museum exhibits. You never have to pay admission to visit the Basalt Rock Café or the Columbia River Trading Co. museum store.

Be a part of this fun day and connect with others to learn how to be the change you wish to see in the world!
