Come celebrate Earth Day at Rocky Mountain National Park. A special Earth Day event will be held Saturday, April 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Beaver Meadows Visitor Center and entrance to the park is free on Saturday. Earth Day is a chance for the world to unite around the importance of environmental service, and there is no better place to celebrate than your national park. There will be an Arts & Crafts station to create cool Earth Day artwork, and park staff and scientists will be on hand to share information on a variety of Earth Day topics! We will also be opening up the park greenhouse for tours from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., offering a great way to see young plants springing to life. A map with directions to the greenhouse will be available at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center.

Join in the Earth Day fun, and discover how to become better stewards of our shared environment. This event is also in conjunction with National Park week and Rocky’s National Junior Ranger Day celebration! Be sure to wear your badges, or ask about earning a Rocky Mountain National Park Junior Ranger Badge at the event. There is family fun for everyone!
