The Pike-Wayne Earth Day Festival is going to be even more fun for the whole family this year! Join PPL, Northeast PA Audubon, and other local conservation groups at the Wallenpaupack Environmental Learning Center from 10-3 on April 26 to celebrate Earth Day! This is a great opportunity to learn more about the organizations in your own backyard and how you can get involved. The event is free and open to the public.
For the first time ever the festival is teaming up with the Downtown Hawley Partnership and AM Skier to offer hands-on activities, games and events for all ages as part of the new Hawley Earth Fest. Some activities are also being extended to Bingham Park in Downtown Hawley and the Hawley Library. A small “species parade” with children wearing animal costumes will take place in the morning at the park and the winners will be announced at noontime at the PPL Earth Day event. Costume-making activities will be held in advance at the library.
That evening, events will continue with the Delaware Highlands Conservancy dinner at The Settler’s Inn and there will be a special Hawley Earth Fest concert featuring Jean Rohe and Maeve Gilchrist at Harmony Presents at the Hawley Silk Mill.
