Got time for a few other earth friendly ideas this weekend? Here are a few suggestions:
4/20 – 11am-3pm
Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch on the promenade with the family. Kids will enjoy face painting and a hat making workshop with Rad Hatter. Plus, food, sustainable cooking demos and live music. Nature Conservancy staff will be on hand to share how and where they work locally and globally. Our earth friendly Ghaby of Ghabit will be on hand. Register at nature.org/PicnicChicago.
4/20 – 10am-2pm
Get ready to learn about green living at Oak Park’s fourth annual Earth Fest, which fittingly takes place at the suburb’s Public Works Center, a gold LEED-certified building. The festival’s goal is to educate the public on how to incorporate environmentally friendly practices into everyday living. Last year’s events included tips on how to compost and recycle. Organic farmers and local restaurants will be on hand during the event to inform the public of their environmental practices. This is a family-friendly event, with children’s activities planned.
4/21 – 10am-noon
Celebrate Earth Day! Come for live music, storytelling, crafting, snacks and fun.
4/23 – 7-9pm
Overflow Coffee Bar, is hosting a film screening with discussion afterwards. Register, and enter a raffle!
