Celebrate Earth Day all weekend with Land Trust

Celebrate Earth Day all weekend with a variety of activities for the whole family, courtesy of the Greenwich Land Trust’s (GLT) Conservation Council.

Kick off the weekend with a shopping trip on Friday, April 19. All day, local stores will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the GLT. Participating vendors include Atelier 360, Bon Ton Fish Market, Cos Cob Liquor, Diane’s Books, Greenwich Prime Meats, Gofer Ice Cream, House of Fins, J Paper, Little Eric, McArdle’s Florist & Garden Center, Méli Mélo, Organic Planet, Outdoor Traders, Pizza Post, Splurge, Smart Kids, Tangerine and Vineyard Vines.

On Saturday, April 20 join the GLT stewardship staff in a community beautification event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Grab your work-gloves and pull on your boots and head to the Mueller Preserve, located at the corner of Round Hill Road and Old Mill Road, as the GLT plants native bushes and trees, picks up trash and removes invasive species. In partnership with Wildlife in Crisis, the event will also feature a wildlife release of a rehabilitated bird. Lunch will be provided by Whole Foods Greenwich and the GLT.

The rain date for the event is the following day, Sunday, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Close out the weekend on Sunday evening relaxing under fresh air and star-gazing with the GLT. People can roll out a blanket and map out the same stars and constellations that have led humans across oceans and continents, instilled wonder throughout history and inspire missions of the future.

“Earth Day is a wonderful opportunity to get outside with your kids and appreciate the nature and beauty that is right here in Greenwich,” said Conservation Council co-chair Kim Gregory. “It’s great to be able to do that while helping an organization that treats everyday like Earth Day, working hard to protect that beauty 365 days a year.”

To join GLT’s beautification or stargazing events, RSVP to 203-629-2151 or via e-mail to Jacinta Mullins at [email protected]

Earth Day revenue supports the Greenwich Land Trust’s ongoing mission — to acquire more land for permanent protection and steward 737 acres of our local nature sanctuaries and wildlife preserves.
