Celebrate Earth Day at the Boston Children's Museum on Tuesday

CELEBRATE EARTH DAY AT BOSTON CHILDREN’S MUSEUM tomorrow, Tuesday, April 22. Festivities kick off Green at Home Fairs sponsored by National Grid
Join us as we celebrate Earth Day 2008, the first Green at Home Fair at Boston Children’s Museum.
Families will have a chance to explore animal habitats, learn about water quality testing, decorate reusable bags, and learn how to pack a waste-free lunch. Visitors will also be able to hear stories about the environment and tree planting. Jim Hunt, Chief of Environment and Energy for the City of Boston, will attend.
BONUS: Each family that visits the museum on Earth Day will receive a tree as they leave, along with information about proper tree care. Boston Children’s Museum will be giving away 1,500 trees in all.
Sponsored by National Grid, Green at Home is a series of “green fairs” that educate visitors about the ways they can decrease their impact on the environment. Earth Day event supporters include Ameriprise Financial, The Arbor Day Foundation, and IzzitGreen.
