Earth Calendar For March 19th and March 20th
Western Wildlife Corridor is hosting its 8th Annual Wildflower Festival on Friday, April 11th, and admission to this family-friendly event is FREE!
With spring just around the corner, the festival is a great way to celebrate by promoting nature education and awareness of area wildflowers. Many activities will be available for kids and adults to enjoy. Local organizations like the Civic Garden Center, Greater Cincinnati Herpetological Society and Oxbow will be in attendance, plus many more. There will be native plants and wildflowers for sale, raffles, a family-friendly class presented by the Greater Cincinnati Herpetological Society and a wildflower painting class. The festival will also offer nature art, pottery, jewelry and educational activities for kids.
Western Wildlife Corridor is still accepting vendors and exhibitors for the festival. Vendors should have a green or natural product or something nature oriented.
Western Wildlife Corridor's mission is to protect the scenic beauty and natural resources of the Ohio River Valley through direct land protection and through the promotion of responsible land use. For more information about the Wildflower Festival, call 859-512-1983 or visit the website.
