Earth Day 2K11 Is On Its Way: Baltimore Style

~  PART 2 ~ EVENT #2 ~

With the news of Washington, DC's "EPA Earth Day on the National Mall" (this weekend, April 16 & 17) space was running short, so here we are at "Part Deux" to fill you in on another great area event.

Maryland Science Center's Earth Day Event
Saturday, April 23, 2011 
Noon – 4:00 pm
601 Light Street , Baltimore’s Inner Harbor

From DC, it's only a short trek up I-95 to get to Baltimore, Maryland, which is where you're going to want to go next weekend to continue your Earth Day 2011 outings & adventures. You'll want to check out The Maryland Science Center.

Grab the family for a fun afternoon full of hands-on activities that inspire your inner scientist & environmentalist! Extra Earth Day bonuses next Saturday with your regular admission price include some of these great opportunities:

♻ Harness the awesome power of renewable energy as they send solar bags aloft over the Inner Harbor

♻ Take an urban safari through the Science Center’s green roof to learn its environmental benefits

♻ Test their sorting savvy, and separate the paper, glass & plastic in recycling races

♻ Perform chemistry experiments and expand their eco-knowledge with green gurus from local colleges and universities

♻ Get the inside dirt on seeds and salad boxes from the Maryland Master Gardeners

To get the "411" on all this & more, check out or call the 24-Hour Information Line at 410-685-5225. Sounds like a dandy of a day ahead, and something to definitely mark on your calendars!

Special thanks to Rachel Fauber and Dan Wiznitzer from Himmelrich PR for sharing this information with me!!
