The Alabama Cooperative Extension System’s Urban Affairs and New Nontraditional Programs Unit is partnering with the City of Huntsville’s Operation Green Team to host Keep America Beautiful’s Earth Day annually at the J.D. and Annie S. Hays Nature Preserve, an idyllic location on the Flint River. The cool green of trees bursting into leaf, combined with the songs of migratory birds provides a peaceful backdrop for this *free* family event. More than 10,000 attended Earth Day at Hays Nature Preserve in 2014. (Last year they had free hotdogs, drinks, & chips for everyone.) As a co-sponsor of the “Butterfly Release” again this year, Urban Affairs staff will release tiger and spicebush swallowtails and painted ladies butterflies into the wild along with other Earth Day attendees. Admission is free and parking is available in VIP field. Earth Day activities will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather.
