SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY: SCA Earth Day at Saratoga Spa State Park – SEED BALLS

Wednesday, April 18, 2018 - April 18, 2018 11:00 am

This April, SCA is hosting 60 projects for Earth Day in honor of 60 years of SCA

With national support from Southwest Airlines and American Express, we are aiming to connect our members, alumni, friends, and partners across the country to create a nationwide network of Earth Month celebrations.

Join SCA’s Hudson Valley Corps and New York State Parks to celebrate Earth Day at Saratoga Spa State Park!

Children and their families are invited to help release the trout into Geyser Creek, located in the Geyser Picnic Area of Saratoga Spa State Park. Technicians from the Van Hornesville Fish Hatchery, operated by the Department of Environmental Conservation, stock the area streams each year with the help of volunteers. Please bring a bucket and join us in introducing the trout to their new home! This year’s activities include demonstrations, environmental displays and food. SCA will also host a table for participants to create native wildflower seed balls. 

Table volunteer opportunities are limited to SCA members. However, all members of the public are invited to come participate in the day’s activities!

WHEN: Wednesday, April 18th, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm

WHERE: Saratoga Spa State Park, Creekside Classroom, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

WHAT: Creating native wildflower seed balls along with other family-friendly environmental education activities.

BRING WITH YOU: Be sure to wear warm clothes and boots, and arrive early to make sure you receive a fish. Please bring your own bucket to transfer the trout to the stream. Seed ball activity will take place throughout the day and will welcome drop-in participants.
