Earth Day Fort Wayne 2015, hosted by Little River Wetlands Project, will be held on Sunday, April 26 from 1 to 5 p.m. This free community event will take place on Engle Road in front of LRWP’s Eagle Marsh preserve (6801 Engle Road, Fort Wayne) and at the preserve itself. It is presented by AEP/Indiana Michigan Power, Aqua Indiana, GM, NIPSCO, OmniSource and Wells Fargo Environmental Solutions for Communities.
“We’ll celebrate LRWP’s 25th anniversary at the event by honoring Denyel Bond and Patricia Hulse, the donors of our new 25-acre Buttonbush Bottoms preserve,” says executive director Amy Silva.
Silva notes that Earth Day became an international occasion the same year, 1990, that LRWP was founded by local conservationists who became concerned that 85% of Indiana’s wetlands had been destroyed. The organization now protects almost 1,200 acres of restored and natural wetlands.
Earth Day Fort Wayne will feature free t-shirts to the first 200 attendees, booths where the presenting sponsors and local environmental groups will showcase their work in support of conservation, live raptor demonstrations by Soarin’ Hawk Raptor Rehab, expert presentations on a variety of nature topics, interactive nature education stations for all ages, children’s activities, and more.
