Earth Day

BANDON - Join Master Gardener Christine Hall along with representatives of the Bandon Public Library, Darcy Grahek of Go Native and several Master Gardeners in City Park to celebrate the awareness of the Earth's well being. 

This Earth Day event, to be held from 12-2 p.m. Saturday, April 21, in Bandon City Park is part of the Big Fish Vision series 

There will be Earth Day events at the gazebo and throughout the park, including a plant giveaway. Go Native students will give away shrubs, trees and ground covers while supplies last. There will be several Master Gardener volunteers ready to answer questions about gardening with native plants.

Make natural bookmarks using furnished papers, flowers and weeds. Kids (young and older) love this activity made by pounding a rock on plants to transfer their natural colors to the paper.

Make native plant seed balls. Kids of all ages learn how to mix the right ingredients to create seed balls using native plant seeds. Take the flower seed balls home and sow them. No burying, no watering ... simply place or toss them on the ground and leave the rest to Mother Nature.

Come early and attend the free morning class "Salmon Friendly Gardening with Native Plants," which will be held at the library from 10 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 21. This is a repeat of a class held on April 11.

All Earth Day events are happening at Bandon City Park. Bring a picnic and enjoy the natural beauty and the kids' play area. Finally, visit the library and see all it offers Bandon families, including the Kid's Zone.
