Earth Day is a great time to cherish our connection to the natural world! Every year RiverLink celebrates the holiday with its annual Earth Day Kid’s Festival. While we can’t host the physical festival this year, we invite families and people of all ages to join us virtually for some environmental education and some fun actives to do at home!
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 features educational activities from some of the best local environmental educators. Topics include recycling, wildlife education, rivers, and more!
We also love to showcase the earth as a source of artistic inspiration. During the virtual event we’ll be showcasing entries and announcing the winners for RiverLink’s Voices of the River: Art and Poetry contest. Tune in and show support for your favorite young artist.
Due to the constantly evolving COVID-19 situation we have cancelled the physical event for our Kid’s Festival this year. We are excited however to provide a virtual education event instead. With the help of multiple other environmental organizations we will be hosting a webinar and Facebook live stream with fun lessons, outdoor activities, and inspirational works of art and poetry. We hope you’ll join us as we celebrate our beautiful planet!
