Earth Day Celebration
Earth Day Celebration!
A Wegmans Day of Play
sponsored by M&T Bank
April 22 is Earth Day! Earth Day at the Botanical Gardens is sponsored by M&T Bank and we are celebrating with a Wegmans Day of Play! Celebrate our Earth this year surrounded by exotic plant life at the Botanical Gardens! Learn about the importance of recycling with our Botanical Gardens Education Team and enjoy completing an activity book as you stop at each of our fun learning stations. You'll also get to create your own seed bomb to learn about the role that pollinators play in nature and observe some germinating seeds with pollinator-friendly seeds to take home and plant!
Help save the bees with Hahn's Honey Bees and learn about their rescue bees, pollinator importance, and enjoy their incredible honey and wax products! Also joining us will be a local environmental artist, Alexis Oltmer, who will be showing the beauty of repurposing and recycling in art. And last, but certainly not least, learn about the importance of healthy lawns with the Erie County Environmental Management Council and their Spokesgnome, Frederick Lawn Gnomested! Snap a picture with Freddie and share his messages with the world!
Please note that some vendors will have items available for purchase at a separate price from admission.
Our Nature Book Drive with the Buffalo Bookmobile is also going on April 1 through the Earth Day Celebration as a part of the WNY Earth Day Challenge through Erie County. Bring in a book and earn points towards the challenge throughout the whole month and receive a guest pass to the Botanical Gardens! *(One guest pass per book limited to five) #WNYEARTHDAYCHALLENGE
