In-Person Earth Day Eco-Workshops

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Celebrate Earth Day and join HRM for an in-person, hands-on science workshops in the Courtyard! This year’s theme is “Restore Our Earth”—undoing damage, preventing more harm, and securing a sustainable future. One way to boost the health of our ecosystem is to take care of the animals that move through the Hudson River watershed—as migrants. Learn how you can welcome monarch butterflies to your yard, accommodate eels in local waters, and recognize eagles and other visitors. Activities utilize biodegradable materials, and you’ll leave with a starter garden to plant at home. See what role you can play, whether you live in the city, the suburbs, or the country, in ensuring the circle of life remains unbroken.

Workshops created by Erika Harrsch, Teaching Artist-in-Residence, and Marc Taylor, Manager of Planetarium and Science Programs, and facilitated outdoors with the help of our Junior Docents. Materials and instructions provided. This program will be socially-distanced; masks are required.
