HAPPY EARTH DAY! Everyday!

We are happy to announce that we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Earth Day by taking our annual Earth Day “How to” Festival to you online on April 25th free of charge.

We may be temporarily closed but that hasn’t stopped the staff from producing meaningful content to keep us connected!

Just go to YouTube.com/SIMuseum to begin watching over 24 informative videos starting at 12 noon on 4/25/20. Learn how to care for honeybees, make flower pots dance, decipher bird calls and so much more (see below)!

All workshops will remain accessible through the spring season so if you miss one you will always be able to catch it later on. Even though we are physically apart we can still celebrate our incredible community’s expertise with each other.

Please feel free to share this unique event with your network of friends and family!
