FFSD’s Little Creek Nature Area To Host Earth Day Event April 26

The Ferguson-Florissant School District’s 97-acre nature preserve, Little Creek Nature Area, will host an Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 26 from 8 a.m. to noon.  The event is free and open to the public. Little Creek Nature Area is located at 2295 Dunn Road in Florissant.

Attendees will be able to witness a rehabilitated bird release and raptor show at the event, hike the nature preserve’s ADA-accessible trails, take an Audubon Society bird-watching walk, visit with and feed the farm’s animals and participate in educational activities at Little Creek’s pond with their children. Guests can also create earth-friendly crafts like recycled grocery bags made from old t-shirts and “seed pockets” for use in home gardens.

The event will also include a presentation at 10 a.m. of the Green Ribbon Schools Awards to Ferguson-Florissant schools that promote sustainable practices in energy usage, gardening, recycling and waste reduction, water run-off and erosion. This year’s new honorees are Lee Hamilton Elementary School, Parker Road Elementary School and Cross Keys Middle School. Returning awardees are Commons Lane Elementary School, Ferguson Middle School and the Mark Twain Student Support Center.
