Earth Day All Around Natick returns

April 27-28, 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.
Visit the “Earth Friendly Fair” (on the Town Common, Saturday, April 27, 9am-1pm), with tables to meet the experts and take home information on a variety of earth-friendly topics, the EV Petting Zoo, and some special family-friendly events happening at noon!
“Earth Day provides an occasion to deliberately connect with our home planet in many  meaningful ways, in our own homes, backyards, and the community spaces of our town,” said Debby Marion, an EcoNatick volunteer.  “Let’s get outside to learn new ways to appreciate and sustain the Earth’s web of life.”
