The 14th annual Earth Day event at Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery will take place this weekend for the first time since 2019.
The event is this Saturday, April 16, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will have activities both adults and children will be able to enjoy, according to Environmental Education/Outreach Specialist Marsha Hart.
“It’s going to be a wonderful opportunity for hands-on learning experiences,” Hart said. “There are just a lot of different stations that people can walk around to and learn about different things for people that love to be outside and outdoors. There will be plenty of things for kids and adults.”
Some of the offerings that will be available are the Liberty Nature Center showing their “Birds of Prey” and Trout Unlimited helping people learn both how to do fly-tying and the technique of fly casting, as well as giveaways, a story walk, informational booths, and many more entertaining and educational opportunities for the entire family.
“We hope everyone can come,” Hart said. “We’re just excited to be able to offer and hope people can come out, and we’re excited to be bringing this back.”
The event is sponsored by the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery and Friends of Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery. It will take place at the fish hatchery, which is located at 50 Kendall Road in Jamestown.
