Picnic for the Earth 2013 at Railroad Park

Join neighbors for the largest, city-wide picnic on Sunday, April 21st from 12noon to 3pm.  Sponsored by the Nature Conservancy, families are invited to bring a picnic to Railroad Park and celebrate Earth Day with environmental-themed exhibits, kids activities and live music.

We attended this free event last year and had a wonderful afternoon enriched by friends and new information.  A local biologist thoughtfully explained issues related to Alabama’s ecosystem to a group of 8 year olds just before they moved on to actively playing with a giant earth ball.
