Earth Day All Around Natick

Earth Day All Around Natick returns, April 29-30, a community-wide weekend festival of engaging, Earth-friendly events.
The EcoNatick organizing team is planting the seeds for another two-day, multi-location celebration where residents, families, community groups, and local organizations will create opportunities for all to get outside, interact, learn, and do something good for the Earth, its living things, and each other.
As part of this celebration, you can observe Earth Day by:
• Enjoying a hike, nature walk, or outdoor meditation
• Taking a test ride in an electric vehicle at the EV Petting Zoo
• Biking or paddling somewhere new
• Helping with a trail, park or school yard cleanup 
• Planting a tree
• Learning about native plant gardening or lawn care/replacement
• Repairing (rather than replacing) a broken item at the Repair Cafe
• Touring a home energy technology installation
• And more!

The organizing team expects to offer at least 25 events, spread around town and scheduled throughout the weekend. Details will be available in April at, to browse events by time, location and category.
New this year, plan to visit the “Earth Friendly Fair” (on the Town Common, Saturday, April 29, 9am-1pm), with tables to meet the experts and take home information on a variety of earth-friendly topics, the EV Petting Zoo, and EcoNatick’s popular “Climate Wheel of Fortune” game!
“Earth Day provides an occasion to deliberately connect with our life-giving planet in many meaningful ways, in our own homes, backyards, and the community spaces of our lovely town,” said Debby Marion, an EcoNatick volunteer. “Let’s get outdoors and find ways to appreciate and reciprocate for all that our amazing life-sustaining planet provides: water, soil, plants, animals, insects, micro-organisms... all that keeps us alive and healthy.”
