Natick’s Earth Day organizers have been filling up April 30 & May 1 with lots of events and invite you to celebrate by planting a free tree sapling. Parents or guardians can register here for kids to receive a tree. Pick up will be April 30, 10am-2pm, at the Bacon Free Library, 58 Eliot St.
Also on April 30, 1oam-2pm at the library, enjoy an activity and art event sponsored by Wilson School. “Project Sapling” will engage kids in a hands-on arts and crafts activity: a “DIY” bird feeder that kids can hang in their own backyard, made from pine cones, bird seed, sun-nut butter, and string, along with a paper bag to take it home.
Don’t miss the story walk on April 30 & May 1, 8am-8pm, on the Bacon Free Library grounds, and read the book Solar Story by Allan Drummond, one page at a time. This book shares the experiences of a Moroccan schoolgirl who lives near the largest solar plant in the world, conveying how the plant has brought jobs and reliable power—and also how it’s upended the old ways of doing things, even in the girl’s own family.

There are many more activities going on around town like a garden tour and some clean-out and tidy-up activities. Learn more here.
