Danville set for Earth Day Celebration

Educational displays, eco-friendly activities, nature walk at Town Green event

Danville is hosting its seventh annual Earth Day Celebration this Saturday, offering people the chance to learn a little more about -- and engage with -- the natural world around them.

Presented by the Danville Library and the town's Clean Water Program, the family-friendly event is set to run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday on the Danville Town Green, in front of the Community Center and Library at 400 Front St.

The celebration will feature a variety of hands-on and educational activities for residents and visitors of all ages, including:

- "Peanuts … Naturally!" from the Charles M. Schulz Museum. Fun, eco-friendly craft and activity stations including solar racing cars, a "rocket" launching station, live worms, dino dig and more.

- Discover educational exhibits by East Bay Regional Park District

- See how the local watershed works with Mr. Funnelhead's Watershed diorama

- Explore local nature on a walk along San Ramon Creek conducted by Friends of San Ramon Creek

- Free prizes.

The Earth Day Celebration is set to take place outdoors, but in case of inclement weather, the event would move inside the library. For more information, contact Clean Water Program coordinator Chris McCann at 314-3342 or, or visit
