Celebrate Earth Day at Quarryhill


Quarryhill Botanical Garden

Saturday April 26th 2014 - 11:00am to



Quarryhill Botanical Garden in Glen Ellen is passionate about the environment, so it’s fitting that they celebrate Earth Day in a big way. On Saturday, April 26, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Quarryhill will host an Earth Day event to honor what Mother Earth provides us and highlight the many ways we can protect it. This is a free family event and all ages are welcome.

Activities will include solar observing by the Sonoma County Astronomical Society and the Robert Ferguson Observatory; fly casting from Leland Fly Fishing Outfitter; Chinese dances performed by the Redwood Empire Chinese Association; archery by Archery for All Ages; educational displays from 4-H and the Sonoma County Beekeepers’ Association; arts & crafts, games, and face painting; fava bean planting; fire truck tours; rare reptile observing and handling from Sonoma Reptile Rescue; art for sale from members of the Artists’ Round Table; books from the Free Bookmobile of Sonoma County; complimentary popcorn courtesy of Reading Cinemas; and tea tastings from Tea Lifestyle Journal.

In addition to all of the festivities, don’t miss out on the once-a-year-only plant sale. It is an opportunity to obtain very rare plants at affordable prices.

Quarryhill Botanical Garden is located at 12841 Sonoma Highway, Glen Ellen. For more information, log onto www.quarryhillbg.org or call 996-3166.
