April 20, 2013 at RiversideNatureCenter, 150 Francisco Lemos St., Kerrville
Locals and tourists of the hill country alike are enamored by the beauty of the area, especially in the spring. And as earth day rolls around this weekend, we take the time to invite you and your family to help celebrate the fragile ecosystem that permits us to live in such a picturesque area. As the bluebonnets are in full bloom and the wildflowers begin to peak their brightly painted petals on the otherwise grassy highway shoulders, it seems more important than ever that we teach our children how important it is to take care of what we have.
Earth Day is April 22nd and The Riverside Nature Center in Kerrville is having its annual Earth Day Festival and Native Plant Sale this weekend in honor of a community that thrives on its natural surroundings. RNC will provide fun workshops on environmental topics, family-oriented activities and entertainment, as well as educational displays and more. Admission is free, making this a great way to spend time with the family and teach your children about nature. Call 830-257-4837 or visit http://www.riversidenaturecenter.org for general information. The event will be held from 8 a.m.-3 p.m., and at 4p.m. there will be a river trail interpretative walk with Susan Sander “to find out what’s to celebrate in the earth.”
