To celebrate Earth Day, King Conservation District joined White River Valley Museum and Mary Olson Farm on Monday for Spring Break at the Museum – Down to Earth week!
We shared the importance of soil health and brought some soil samples for kids to find tiny critter friends, like earth worms, rollie pollies, and other organisms. Kids also got a sneak peek of how bees live with a demonstration beehive from Green River College Honeybees/Green River College, colored a native plant and pollinator haven, and created native plant seed bombs to plant in their community.
Between today and Friday, White River Valley Museum will be holding Earth Day activities to explore more about the wonderful world we live in, the creatures we share it with, and the choices we can all make to help our planet.
