Earth Day Celebration

Earth Day Celebration poster 2019-FINAL1

 

Join Barrington Area Conservation Trust in a conservation event that joins the entire community in celebrating Earth Week!  Local businesses, municipalities, foundations, students and families are coming together to honor Mother Nature and restore the Barrington area’s natural beauty.  Participants will plant native plants, clear buckthorn and help with habitat restoration.  Children are welcome! Crafts and educational opportunities will be available for those younger land stewards in the community.  BACT will provide free potted oak tree saplings to all attendees.
