Come back to where it all began – Wisconsin!
…and meet the Father of Earth Day (Wisconsin’s own Gaylord Nelson), go outside to compete in a statewide Virtual Earth Day Scavenger Hunt, prepare to Foray for Frogs and Turtles from the comfort of your couch, or take a “deep dive” into understanding one of Wisconsin’s natural wonders with a Virtual Cave Tour of Cave of the Mounds!
It’s all there and available to you as part of Wisconsin’s own “Remake Learning Days” Festival, scheduled to launch April 22 and run through May 15th, 2021.
The Wisconsin Festival features dozens of nature-themed events to celebrate Earth Day, as well as over 100 free and low-cost engaging events, programs and experiences offered by local nonprofit organizations for K-12 youth and their families!
Given the Wisconsin Festival’s launch date of April 22nd, organizers are kicking off the Festival with over a dozen virtual and hybrid events that celebrate Earth Day and the great outdoors, such as:
- Hone your nature observation skills by participating in the new Wisconsin Earth Day Scavenger Hunt offered by Forward Labs in collaboration with dozens of outdoor sites;
- Enjoy a mud-free way to look for wetland and other amazing creatures from the comfort of your own home with Natural Resources Foundation’s Springtime Foray for Frogs & Turtles and other virtual field trip explorations;
- Go “deep” to explore geology and fossils with Cave of the Mounds’ Virtual Cave Tour;
- Enjoy the family-friendly Earth Day Storytime experience with Beloit Public Library, and learn All About Tracking from Welty Environmental Center;
- And learn more about the Father of Earth Day, Gaylord Nelson, through PBS Wisconsin Education’s biography, Gaylord Nelson: A Vision for the Earth.
These virtual and hybrid experiences occur at different dates throughout the Festival and are accessible via the searchable Remake Learning Days website. Find out more at: www.remakelearningdays.org/Badgerland
