SHERBURNE – A day of fun and celebration of nature is in store for this Saturday, when Friends of Rogers hosts its annual Earth Fest.
Earth Fest will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at Rogers Environmental Education Center, St. Hwy. 80 in Sherburne.
This annual event promises something for everyone. Visitors can try their hand at kayaking or canoeing on the Cunningham Ice Pond, learn how to tie flies and cast them, build a bluebird box, and learn about the importance of recycling and conserving energy.
Additionally, information will be available for anyone interested in home solar energy systems or other simple ways of saving money and energy while also improving the health of the planet.
Artists and woodworkers will be there to showcase their love of the natural world through their artwork. Other exhibitors will share their knowledge of butterflies, gardening, fishing, hiking, astronomy, farming, birding, composting and geocaching. For $10, visitors can take home their own bluebird box or leave with a butterfly feeder for $5.
Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at picnic tables on the Rogers Center grounds or food will be available to purchase...
