The first Earth Day, in 1970, marked the beginning of the modern environmental movement.

Now celebrating its 20th anniversary of conservation excellence, the Kiawah Conservancy invites you to join us for an Earth Day Celebration on April 21, from 4-7 p.m. at the Naturally Kiawah Demonstration Garden in Night Heron Park.

Environmental stewardship is the foundation for a healthy and sustainable community. The Kiawah Conservancy is dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and enhancement of Kiawah’s natural resources. Through focus on research and education, the Conservancy encourages citizens to become leaders in environmental conservation for the benefit of all.

The Center for Birds of Prey will kick-off the Earth Day Celebration with a flight demonstration beginning at 4 p.m.

Other activities will include:

Ladybug releases throughout the event in the Garden

A Native Plant Sale sponsored by Brownswood Nursery

A Farmers Market sponsored by Rosebank Farms

Art and photography strolls in the garden

Meet and greets with Island naturalists and their favorite animals from the Nature Center

Learn about Kiawah Conservancy’s conservation efforts, habitat program, preserved properties, educational opportunities and how you can help!

Join the new Kiawah Garden Keepers group and help keep the Naturally Kiawah Garden naturally beautiful

Bring your own picnic and enjoy live music on the lawn by Gary Pecorella beginning at 5 p.m.
