A Special Note from Fairfield Earth Day Co-Chairs, Larry Kaley and Mary Hogue

It’s been twenty-one years of observing folks, face to face, enjoying and learning about sustainable and organic methods to use in their daily lives. Exhibits, round table discussions, talks, entertainment, art and more create the positive experiences one has attending Fairfield’s Earth Day Celebration. Enjoying the interaction of eager attendees and exhibitors gave those of us involved in planning and working at the event a fulfilling sense of satisfaction. We knew that in our small way, we made Fairfield, America and the rest of the world a better place to live in.

Virtual Fairfield Museum

To celebrate Earth Day, the Museum is hosting a special Storytime Live on April 22,
featuring a reading of the beloved children’s book, Dear Children of the Earth by Schim Schimmel, a remarkable letter from Mother Earth asking for help from children everywhere.

Create Your Own Earth Day 2020 Garden

Got even a square foot of outdoor space? Celebrate the 50th Earth Day by getting outdoors and planting a pollinator-friendly garden! Pollinators (insects, birds or other animals that move pollen from one plant to another) are responsible for up to 30% of our food supply. Our native pollinator populations are threatened due to pesticide use, habitat loss due to urbanization and suburbanization (lawns are not habitat for pollinators), and climate change. It’s fun and easy for kids to help plant and maintain your garden!

Go on Safari!

You don’t have to come to Aspetuck Land Trust’s preserves for a nature adventure… look to your own yard! Hunt for invasive plants, celebrate native pollinators, and be on the lookout for any exciting critter hiding under rocks and logs in your own yard!
