Early Earth Day celebration teaches kids about the planet


Earth Day is April 22nd, but on Sunday, Elkhart County Parks worked with other local organizations to host a variety of Earth Day events for kids.

From planting seeds, to digging for worms, kids had a chance for hands-on learning.

"What we're doing is just trying to have a fun family friendly event based around Earth Day and getting the word out on things you can do in your backyard, things you can do with your kids, just to make people more aware and be a little more sustainable," says Christa Daniels with Elkhart County Parks.

Local natural resource organizations also spoke on what they do and how the community can get connected.
