Earth Day Celebration

Date(s) - Saturday, Apr 22, 2023
10:00 am-3:00 pm

Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens


Earth Day at the Botanical Gardens this year is surrounded by exotic plant life.  Learn about the importance of recycling and enjoy completing an activity book as you stop at each station.  Create your own seed bomb to learn about the role that pollinators play in nature and observe some germinating seeds with pollinator-friendly seeds to take home and plant.

Help save the bees with Hahn’s Honey Bees and learn about their rescue bees, and enjoy their incredible honey and wax products.  There will be an environmental artist, Alexis Oltmer, who will be showing the beauty of repurposing and recycling in art. And lastly, learn about the importance of healthy lawns with the Erie County Environmental Management Council and their Spokesgnome, Frederick Lawn Gnomested.  Snap a picture with Freddie and share his messages with the world.

Please note that some vendors will have items available for purchase at a separate price from admission.
