Earth Day Event Saturday in Farmington

(Farmington) Two local groups, that have our planets’ best interest in mind, are teaming together to bring an Earth Day event to the public in Farmington on Saturday.

This event takes place at Engler Park.

Regional Radio got a chance to speak to Sue Hagen with the East Ozarks Audubon Society and Russell Myers with a group called Southeast Missouri Wild Ones.

They tell us what’s happening at Saturday’s event.

Southeast Missouri Wild Ones is a fairly new group.

Myers tells us a little more about what they do.

The Audubon group will begin weeding and mulching work at the butterfly garden at Engler Park in Farmington Saturday morning at 8.

Everyone is welcome to help. Make sure to bring garden pruners and gloves.

The workshop on how to remove invasive honeysuckle will begin Saturday morning at 10 at the Crouch Nature Sanctuary.

Following the presentation, there will be a hands-on demonstration on honeysuckle removal.

A bring your own picnic will conclude the Earth Day event around noon on Saturday.
