Earth Day takes place this Saturday 22 April. It’s a day when people get together to celebrate our planet and to take action to protect it.
Stroud’s conservation and community-building charity Stroud Valleys Project is joining forces with the Museum in the Park, in Stroud’s Stratford Park, to present a free, family-friendly day celebrating our planet and its animal inhabitants.
“We have loads of fun activities for everyone to enjoy,” explains Sharon Gardham, one of the event organisers.
“You can cut out and colour your own Skylark kite, fold origami butterflies, or create your own discovery trail around the park with our journey bags.”
As well as Stroud Valleys Project, from 11am to 4pm there will be delicious sourdough pizzas on sale, freshly prepared and cooked by Velo, a Wild Escape butterfly-inspired installation on show in Gallery Two, and the Society of Wood Engravers’ new exhibition opening from 2pm to 4pm.
