The second annual event will include free family activities such as a tree seedling giveaway, rain barrel demonstration, mobile free library, natural art projects, and creek water monitoring. There will be educational programs throughout the day, games with Johnson County Parks and Recreation, and a compost talk with Purdue Extension volunteers.
