The enormous challenge — but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.
Special presentations, including Blue-Green Connections,, at Honeymoon Island at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, April 18 and 19, include these topics:
Guided Osprey Trail nature walks will be available hourly during the weekend. Osprey Village will include displays from state and local nonprofit environmental agencies, conservation agencies and sustainability groups.
A number of children’s activities will be ongoing including crafts and face painting. Puppet-making featuring butterflies, moths or flowers with a parade of pollinators will follow for photo ops.
Continuous live entertainment with Steel Drums with Jessica Renaud, the Time Bandits, the Wendy Barmore Band and the Cadillac Cowboys. A variety of tasty food and beverages including craft beers will be available.
Visitors can win a kayak donated by Osprey Bay Outdoors or a new bicycle. Tickets for the prizes will be on sale both days with drawings on Sunday at 4 p.m. Participants need not be present to win. There also will be a chance to win other prizes with your car admission ticket received on entry to the park.
