Earth Day Watershed Extravaganza at Walden Ponds

In partnership with the Keep It Clean Partnership, Boulder County Parks and Open Space are hosting a very special Earth Day event at Walden Ponds! This event will have something for every age group and interest. Bring your family and friends to celebrate our local environment and give back to our open spaces by participating in some volunteer work projects or in educational events. Register (greatly appreciated but not required) using the links below:
Earth Day Event 9:00am-12:00pm
Upcycled Crafting Activities & Education Stations: 9:00am-12:00pm
We have two activities where you can craft with recycled materials. We will have a few materials available if you don’t have any to bring, but see the description below to see if you already have something at home you can bring. We will provide the rest of the materials to help you make them!
1) Reusable Tote Bags
Make a reusable tote bag out of pet food/grain bags. These will come in handy as you will no longer be able to get disposable plastic bags in Colorado in 2024.
Bring: Pet food bag (the plastic, woven kind). You can bring as many as you’d like!
2) Pet Waste Holder
Cleaning up after your pets on trails is essential to keeping our waterways clean, and carrying pet waste back on a hike doesn’t need to be a nuisance. We will be making dog waste carriers for the trail. This allows you to contain your dog waste once you have picked it up with a pet waste bag. It keeps the smell and poop contained until you get to a trash container for disposal. We will provide decorative tape and carabiners – this will turn your empty container into a portable waste container that can easily clip onto a backpack.
Bring: Plastic gelato container, or any small-medium plastic jar with a screw top lid.
