TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) The annual Earth Day celebration returns this weekend at Saint Mary of the Woods.
The White Violet Center and Sisters of Providence will celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The afternoon will be filled with a number of activities including visiting the horse barn, a nature walk, and hanging out with WVC’s alpacas.
“Just again, being mindful and all these little things that we’ve heard from ever since we were little kids to just do our part. Not littering, if you can have a little garden in the backyard and teaching how to grow food and just plant beautiful flowers but then that becomes a little pollinator, a way for the bees to be able to get food,” Tara Elmore, Farm Projects Coordinator said.
Elmore said it’s important to remember there are ways you can stay eco-friendly, even outside of Earth Day.
“I think just taking the time to think about where your food comes from, think about how if you buy local, whether it’s food or you’re going to shop, that you’re supporting the families in your community,” Elmore said.
The celebration is free of charge, but Elmore said donations will be accepted.
Food trucks and other vendors will also be on-site throughout the afternoon.
