Join us on the plaza in front of RCC Hunters Woods for a fun and eco-friendly family event to mark Earth Day. This program is free; registration and mask-wearing are required. 

Event Activities:

  • Make Your Own Playdough – using ingredients you may already have at home that are non-toxic. Be sure to bring your own container to take your playdough home! 
  • Start Your Own Herb Garden – we will give you all the supplies to create an herb garden and maintain it at home.
  • Join the Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital for an interactive activity and demonstration.
  • Storytelling – at 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., we will be reading an Earth-friendly book that is fun for all ages. Storytelling will be followed by an accompanying craft.

Families can also take part in the Green Reston event from home. Participate in the Green Reston scavenger hunt anytime between April 2 – 24. Explore nature and take pictures along the way. No need to get in your car! Take your bikes or just go for a walk around your neighborhood.
 
Use the hashtag #GreenReston in social media platforms (make sure your account is set to public viewing). Not on social media? Email pictures to LaTanja.Snelling@fairfaxcounty.gov. The family with the best picture will win a prize!

Please note: due to COVID-19, advance registration for an hour-long time slot is required.
