With its existence and lifestyle so tied to nature, it’s no wonder Chincoteague is celebrating spring in a big way this weekend. “Mother Earth” Day activities are happening at the Refuge Visitor Center and at Robert Reed Park on the waterfront by the old drawbridge.

 

“Go Wild, Go Birding” is the theme at the Refuge. The migratory birds are still passing through on their way north, and this is a chance to see the last of them. There is an early morning bid walk planned, as well as wildlife crafts including soap carving sponsored by the Ward Museum, wildlife artists displaying their works, and live animals from the Salisbury Zoo, Pocomoke Discovery Center, and Pocomoke State Park. Bus tours of the island and tours of the lighthouse are scheduled, too. It runs from 9-4. Info at 757-336-6122.

 

Over at the park, the focus is on living ecologically, with the stage for live music using solar panels for power, environmental energy displays, and bicycle-powered spin art. There’s a sale of artwork made from recycled materials and information and sale of organic food at the farmers’ market. There’s even a pre-schooler play area run by the local pre-school mom support group. The event runs from 10-4. It’s all put on by www.Chincoteagueculturalalliance.org.
