Celebrate Earth Day this month with the Greenwich Land Trust. GLT’s Conservation Council has planned a weekend of fun events from shopping to star-gazing that the whole family can enjoy!

Support your local environment and enjoy what Greenwich has to offer with these three events:

Friday April 19- Earth Day Shopping
Kick off the weekend with a shopping trip on Friday April 19th. All day, great local stores will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the GLT. Participating vendors include: Atelier 360, Bon Ton Fish Market, Cos Cob Liquor, Diane’s Books, Greenwich Prime Meats, Gofer Ice Cream, House of Fins, J Paper, Little Eric, McArdle’s Florist & Garden Center, Méli Mélo, Organic Planet, Outdoor Traders, Pizza Post, Splurge, Smart Kids, Tangerine and Vineyard Vines.

Saturday April 20-- Beautification projects at Mueller Preserve
Saturday April 20th join the GLT stewardship staff in a community beautification event from 9am-1pm. Grab your work-gloves and pull on your boots and join us at the Mueller Preserve (located at the corner of Round Hill Rd. and Old Mill Rd.) as we plant native bushes and trees (donated by The Care of Trees), pick up trash, and remove invasive species. In partnership with Wildlife in Crisis, the event will also feature a wildlife release of a rehabilitated bird. Lunch will be provided by Whole Foods Greenwich and the GLT. Rain date: Sunday 1 to 4pm.

Sunday April 21- Family Stargazing in the meadow
Close out the weekend on Sunday evening relaxing under fresh air and open skies star-gazing with the GLT. Roll out a blanket and map out the same stars and constellations that have led humans across oceans and continents, instilled wonder throughout history and inspire missions of the future!

“Earth Day is a wonderful opportunity to get outside with your kids and appreciate the nature and beauty that is right here in Greenwich,” says Conservation Council co-chair Kim Gregory. “It’s great to be able to do that while helping an organization that treats everyday like Earth Day, working hard to protect that beauty 365 days a year.”

To join GLT’s beautification or stargazing events, please RSVP to 203-629-2151 or via email to Jacinta Mullins.

Earth Day revenue supports the Greenwich Land Trust’s ongoing mission – to acquire more land for permanent protection and steward 737 acres of our local nature sanctuaries and wildlife preserves. The Greenwich Land Trust, founded in 1976, is a 501c3 non-profit organization and nationally accredited land trust dedicated to maintaining 737 acres of land in Greenwich, CT – to protect the environmental health of our community, preserve its natural beauty and conserve its waterways, forests and wildlife for this and future generations.

Wildlife in Crisis is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization, founded in 1989 to care for injured and orphaned wildlife. Our facility in Weston, Connecticut was donated to us by an anonymous benefactor in 1990, and in the years since we've received an average of 10,000 calls about wildlife every year.
