You are invited to the 2019 Creation Care Fest – Environmental Extravaganza! This free event is actually three events in one: lectures by expert speakers on The State of Our World, an exhibit by local environmental organizations, and a family-friendly festival with kids’ activities such as games, crafts, encounters with live education animals, seed planting (to take home & watch grow!) and much more. Please register for this event for planning purposes on www.eventbrite.com. Note that all children must be accompanied by an adult. Contact Lisa Brenskelle at [email protected] with any questions.
