Earth Day celebration coming to maritime center

The Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center in Canal Park will host an Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, said the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District, in a news release last week.

The celebration will be from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Throughout the center there will be free family activities hosted by a number of organizations, including the Western Lake Superior Sanitary District, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, University of Minnesota Extension-Master Gardeners, USDA Forest Service, Lake Superior National Estuary Research Reserve, Youth Outdoors-Duluth and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Participants will pick up a passport book, receive stamps at each station and receive a free prize at the information desk once the passport is completed.

For questions or additional information, contact the Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center at (218) 788-6430.

The Army Corps of Engineers said it uses Earth Day to highlight environmental successes and help people understand how sound environmental stewardship supports quality of life. Earth Day was founded in 1970 as a day of education about environmental issues. Earth Day 2018 actually occurs on April 22.
