Earth Day Celebration
A big "thank you" to our partner, Regional Environmental Council of Central Massachusetts; our sponsors and vendors; entertainers; and volunteers, who all helped to make our 2013 Earth Day Celebration a wonderful success!
Friday, April 19, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The EcoTarium's Earth Day Celebration is one of Worcester's most popular Earth Day traditions. Everyone enjoys half price admission, lots of indoor and outdoor family-friendly activities, and, of course, the EcoTarium's beautiful trails, ponds, and woods that are bursting with new life.
Earth Day Admission: $7 adults, $4 children 2-18, $5 seniors and students with ID; free for EcoTarium members. (Since admission is half price, coupons and discounts do not apply on Earth Day.) Extra fees apply for the Explorer Express Train and planetarium shows.
Earth Day Celebration is presented by the EcoTarium and the Regional Environmental Council of Central Massachusetts. This year, the event is also part of the Cambridge Street Festival.
