Earth Day is a great time to cherish our connection to the natural world! This year RiverLink will be celebrating the holiday with its 3rd annual Earth Day Kid’s Festival. We invite families and people of all ages to come out and enjoy environmental education, arts and crafts, performances and more! Lets show the world that we are all connected as inhabitants of the earth.
The Salvage Station | 468 Riverside Dr, Asheville, NC 28801
Saturday April 22nd 9 AM – 2 PM
As protectors of the French Broad River we understand the importance of environmental conservation. We and all of our partnering organizations want to share our knowledge and passion with the stewards of tomorrow. This event will feature educational activities from some of the best local environmental educators. Topics can range from recycling to watersheds, to farmsteading and more.
We also want to showcase the earth as a source of artistic inspiration. Therefore the festival will host many eco-friendly arts and crafts. It will also be the first display of RiverLink’s Voices of the River: Art and Poetry contest entries for 2017. All entries reflect the theme “How are you connected to your watershed” The judge’s winners will be announced at the festival, so come show support for your favorite young artist.
And of course what would a festival be without fun and entertainment? You can expect games, face painting, interactive music, and more!
If you’d like for your organization to participate in this event please contact Event Coordinator Justin Young at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15th.
2016 was a great festival! In 2017 let’s make sure we create even more stewards of tomorrow!
