  • In support of its educational mission, and commitment to the environment and the community, 21 Acres is hosting an Earth Day event, “Give Back to the Earth,” on Saturday, April 21st from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. This will be a special day of fun and rewarding volunteer opportunities.

     

    Volunteer work parties at 21 Acres are some of the most popular and rewarding activities on campus as staff and members of the community collaborate and learn alongside each other as they work together. As part of the local effort to support the National Wildlife Federation’s “Wildlife in the City” program, 21 Acres continues to enhance our green spaces and offers a public connection to our urban areas with rural farmland. Projects on campus for this Earth Day event will include spring farm chores, maintenance in the hedgerows, bio-swale and rain garden enhancements, and wetland restoration.

    “Give Back to the Earth” is free and open to the public. All ages and abilities are welcome to participate and student and community groups are invited to attend. Work gloves are recommended, bring a pair or borrow ours, you’ll want to be ready to get your hands in the soil.
