EDay KIND 2018

Earth Day on the Greenway with Kids in Nature Day 2018

Calling all volunteers for Earth Day on the Greenway and Kids in Nature Day (KIND) on the 4-Mile Creek Greenway in Matthews, NC

Saturday, April 14, 2018   10:00 am - 2:00 pm

HAWK is combining two of the biggest and best Matthews spring events into one huge celebration of nature, family and fun.

The Earth Day celebration starts behind the Matthews Community Center and continues along the 4-Mile Creek Greenway.  "Kid-central" will feature guided hikes, crafts, nature exhibits, "vegan" fishing and other activities.

Please sign up to volunteer and share your love of earth and nature with families and kids that spend too much screen time and not enough outdoor time. 

Parking is limited. Please park at the Matthews Community Center (100 W McDowell St, Matthews, NC 28105) and carpool, if possible. 

Sign-up for the full event, if you can, and dress appropriately for the outdoors, the weather and fun! Remember to bring your lunch and a water bottle to refill.

Sponsored by Williams Subaru, HAWK (Matthews Chapter of NC Wildlife Federation), Great Outdoors University and the Town of Matthews.
