KATONAH, N.Y. -- Earth Day is coming to the farm Saturday as the Country Childrens Center celebrates with a number of activities.
The Katonah-based Center is to hold its event at its farm location, 466 Cross River Road, from 11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Activities will include garden planting, walks in the fairy woods, pony rides, a petting zoo, jumping castle, face painting, magic wand making, a blue block build-a-thon, food, music and eco-friendly information tables, according to organizers.
Also on hand will be local children's book author and illustrator Chad Wallace, who is to read his nature-themed books and do book signings.
The Earth Day event is open to families and friends of the Country Childrens Center at a charge of $20 for a family of four and $25 for families that are larger.
"Part of the beauty of our program is nature," said County Childrens Center Executive Director Polly Peace. "It is woven throughout our curriculum and we are fortunate to have five sites with beautiful outdoor settings for the children to enjoy on a daily basis."
Peace continued to describe Earth Day as the "perfect celebration to get families together to enjoy the outdoors and appreciate ... natural beauty."
