To demonstrate support for keeping the planet healthy and clean, the Providence Master Planned Community is hosting the Going Green Earth Day Celebration in conjunction with annual international Earth Day celebrations. The free family-friendly event combines a clean-up and fun and interactive environmental-related activities and will be on Saturday, April 21 at Huckleberry Park, located at 10325 Farm Rd.
The day begins with a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) clean-up in the desert area west of Providence from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Volunteers will meet at the Huckleberry Park basketball courts at 8:30 a.m. where they will be assigned an area, have access to shuttles and receive a backpack with a water bottle and a T-shirt.
Going Green Earth Day festivities continue at Huckleberry Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be music, games, a toddler play yard and a kids section with an inflatable bungee run, obstacle course and interactive games. Kaia FIT will offer a power workout and yoga during the event, while Star Nursery will host gardening demonstrations for kids and adults. Kids will learn how to plant fruits and vegetables in a bag during the “Plant Your Own Lunch” demo, while adults learn how to plant the ingredients needed to make salsa during the “Plant Your Own Salsa” demo. Frozen Frog, Soul Food Café Express, 50 Shades of Green and Fusion Beastro food trucks will have food items for sale.
The event also will feature The Birdman Show, a fun and educational zoo-type show including comedy and an eagle, condor and 15-foot snake. It presents information about the importance of predators for rodent control as an alternative to using poisons which can seep into the ground and affect crops.
In addition, a variety of community partners will have information and giveaway items. Attendees can pick up a passport at the Providence Master Association table. Those who visit all the partners and have their passport stamped will have a chance to win a gift basket. Opportunity Village also will be onsite to provide free shredding.
At the end of the event, Providence will continue with its tradition of releasing ladybugs. They are considered beneficial because they consume harmful insects that kill or damage flowers, shrubs and trees.
