Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation Education Center was alive was activity Saturday morning, April 21, as hundreds of people from the area arrived to participate in the third annual Earth Day Festival.
The tops of white tents placed throughout the front portion of the WACF property could be viewed approaching the property on SR 13. Twenty different organizations participated in the event.
Those arriving were given free tote bags and a coupon for a free hot dog, chips and water. Participants could also participate in an Earth Day scavenger hunt.
Adults as well as families strolled around the ground, visiting each of the vendors, learning about the watershed, how to make duck calls, taking nature photographs, plant trees, make seed balls, learn about the trails around the lake, see various duck and spear fishing decoys, learn about fly tying and even trying their hand at archery.
