Tee-ball practice, sidewalk chalk, bike riding... these activities all scream April. With predicted mild temperatures and Earth Day this week, it is the perfect opportunity to grab a baseball mitt, find the chalk or dust off the bike helmet to enjoy the outdoors.
After having some neighborhood fun, be sure to check out our events calendar, which is filled with a multitude of activities to help young ones embrace nature. Visit Bucktoe Creek Preserve for its Drop-In on Nature Playgroup, learn about Habitats and Sharing at Newlin Grist Mill's Springhouse Storytime or explore Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education's Seedlings workshop. In the evening, families can relish carnival fun in Broomall or Morton. Or, savor the nighttime skies as the Philadelphia Science Festival presents its Astronomy Night Friday evening at Independence Seaport Museum, John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge, Awbury Arboretum, Haverford College, West Chester University, as well as other locations throughout the Delaware Valley.
