NHM Celebrates Earth Day With Live Music, Activities and More

Author: Newsroom

Celebrate Earth Day with NHM! Join us in our Nature Gardens for Earth Day-themed programming, such as live musical performances, hands-on activities, up-close encounters with behind-the-scenes Museum collections, the Science of Spongebob, and so much more!

With exhibitors such as Safe, Clean Water program’s Central Santa Monica Watershed, Tree People and Headcount and hands-on activities ranging from butterfly walks and seed ball distribution to native plant sketching and puppets, the event promises to be a Sunday afternoon to remember. Several NHMLAC Research & Collections experts will also be presenting, including mini-lectures on coyotes, bird nests, and fragmentary fossils, as well as interactive displays from mammalogy, entomology, ornithology, ichthyology, marine biodiversity, polychaetes and NHMLAC’s other location, La Brea Tar Pits. SpongeBob Squarepants will also be on-site for photo ops, treasure hunting and to explore his biodiverse world with NHM’s experts.

Additional Earth Day programming includes readings from Erica Silverman’s new book, The City Sings Green, multiple performances by Masanga Marimba, and ongoing meet and greets both with NHM’s live animals and puppets.

Since 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated on April 22 to give a voice to environmental consciousness and inspire people to take action for their planet. The Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County protect and share more than 35 million specimens and artifacts, the largest natural and cultural history collection in the western United States. By understanding the world around us, past and present, we gain a better appreciation for our planet and for all who share it.
