Calendar: Earth Day (April 22)

Whether you're celebrating Good Friday or Earth Day, there's no school on Friday. Several local organizations have planned accordingly.

Rock Creek Park has two special events scheduled to celebrate the day on Friday: a migratory bird walk at 9:00, and a woodland trail walk at 3:00. Plus there's always their regular Friday Creature Feature animal feeding at 4:00.

Brookside Nature Center is sponsoring a hike on the Billy Goat A Trail near Great Falls in the morning, and a tree walk at the nature center on Friday afternoon.

And the US Botanic Garden is hosting an Earth Day Celebration Friday from 10:00 to 2:00 at their space on the Mall.
