NEW: Fruitlands Museum Hosts Earth Day Activities

Sunday, April 22, 2012

 

The museum offers many scenic hiking areas.

The beauty of nature in Massachusetts will be celebrated at the Fruitlands Museum today. The museum, located on 102 Prospect Hill Road in Harvard, has planned a fun filled Family Friendly Earth Day celebration. Earth Day has been celebrated since 1970 as a day to bring awareness and celebrate the environment, and Fruitland’s vast 210 acres of land will host a number of outdoor activities that will be fun for the whole family.

“We like to think that every day is Earth Day at Fruitlands, given our amazing setting here, but this Sunday really gives us the opportunity to showcase with our visitors, both young and old, the abundance of natural beauty that abounds on our grounds,” said Maggie Green, Fruitlands Director of Education and Public Programming. “The Earth Day activities on Sunday will be educational and entertaining, and appropriate for all ages.”

Events scheduled on the half hour from 11am-12pm and 1pm-2pm are a hike to a Native American hunting ground, a watercycle game, and storytime. Activities that will be available throughout the day include crafting nature journals, making garden stakes, planting a new flax garden, and lawn games at the Farmhouse. If you just want to go out on your own Fruitlands offers numerous trails to hike as well plenty of space for you to lie out in the sun or have a picnic with the family. The full schedule of Earth Day events and activities can be found athttp://www.fruitlands.org/events/earthday" target="_blank"> http://www.fruitlands.org/events/earthday
