Date added: 04/14/2015 Wilmington Earth Day Event

Wilmington, NC is having an Earth Day event on Saturday, April 25th, taking place at Hugh MacRae Park from 12pm-6pm. The theme of this year’s Earth Day festivities is based on the Food and Agriculture Organization’s designation of the year 2015 as the, “International Year of Soils.”

The event, in addition to providing fun and educational booths for kids of all ages to participate in, is aimed at creating an educational experience about the importance and benefits of healthy soil. The Earth Day Alliance is ready to demonstrate the importance of soil as it is used for crops that assist in feeding, sheltering and clothing us. While participants learn about soil as it relates to our human experiences, they also are exposed to methods that can help protect soil. Steps that can reduce soil pollution vary from reducing pollution, preventing erosion, rerouting and reducing stormwater runoff.Wilmington Earth Day

Wilmington’s Earth Day is a free opportunity to be entertained and informed, available for families and individuals of all ages. Glide Bikes is proud to be a part of this year’s Wilmington’s Earth Day. Kids can use a Glide Bikes Balance bike to practice balancing, motor skills and enjoying the cycling experience at their own pace. Cycling is a green way to travel and a great way to connect with the world around you. Fostering a love for cycling in people of all ages and abilities is a strong passion held at Glide Bikes. Through the Earth Day Event we will offer kids an easy and safe method for getting comfortable on a bike. Starting out on a balance bike minimizes fear that accompanies the traditional training wheel transition and allows kids to be fully prepared for how to balance, even at slow speeds.

Come on out and say hi to Glide Bikes and the rest of the Wilmington Earth Day crew, have fun, and learn some great tips about the earth and how we interact with it.
