Sunday, April 25, is the annual celebration of Earth Day from 1-4 p.m. at Olmstead Park and Nature Shack. Participants are invited to Olmstead Park, 920 Cypress Lane, Elk Grove Village, to connect with nature. This year, the event is modeled around the Chicago Wilderness Initiative's Children's Outdoor Bill of Rights.

Enjoy the catch and release of frogs, fish and insects. Plant a flower, play in the mud. There will be cold blooded creatures you can be hands on with including an alligator, a tortoise and snakes. Animal demonstrations and kid friendly activities make this event fun for the entire family.
