Along with all those gorgeous spring blooms, April brings us a whole month of eco-friendly fun and learning, with Earth Day, on April 22, as its natural center. Here’s a rundown of Earth Day events in Santa Clarita and other green-living community events to enjoy throughout April.
Wednesday, April 17 — Earth Day: Make a Wormery! (For the Kids)
Elementary schoolers will discover how everyday earthworms turn kitchen scraps into garden-friendly compost at this free library program. Kids can make their own wormeries to take home and watch the crawlers get to work.
