Clark Public Utilities’ StreamTeam is hosting its annual Earth Day Celebration Saturday, April 22, in partnership with Clark County. The 18th annual Earth Day Fest will be held at Salmon Creek Regional Park with activities for the whole family. “This event has become a tradition for families to celebrate our natural environment, and this year the fest is actually on Earth Day,” says Ashley King, StreamTeam coordinator for Clark Public Utilities.
The family-friendly event, open to the public, is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with fun and educational activities for all-ages. There will be prizes, a Birds of Prey show by the Audubon Society, live reptile demonstrations, OMSI science festival activities and an interactive juggling act. Kids are also welcome to take part in a nature walk where wild salmon will be released into Salmon Creek.
In addition to the fest, hundreds of volunteers will pitch in from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to plant native trees. Volunteers must register in advance to participate in the planting and space is limited – all training and supplies will be provided. Lunch will be free to four-hour volunteers, and the first 100 Earth Day Fest attendees will receive lunch for free, or an insulated grocery bag. Lunch will also be available for purchase at the fest. For more information and a schedule of Earth Day Fest events, visit the StreamTeam website at www.StreamTeam.net, call 360-992-8585, or email StreamTeam@clarkpud.com.
The Downtown Camas Association (DCA) invites you to adopt a flower basket to bring color and beauty to historic Downtown Camas this spring. The baskets add to the small town charm and experience for locals and visitors alike, and this is a way for people to contribute directly to the vibrancy of their community. The DCA is a nonprofit organization that works with the community and the City of Camas in downtown vitality efforts. Baskets can be adopted for $45. The donation can be made on the DCA website here, and a receipt for the tax deductible donation will automatically be generated. The goal is to again bring 56 baskets to Downtown Camas on Fourth and Fifth Avenues to add color and interest to the streets of downtown from spring through fall.
