Earth Day at the Refuge
The morning’s highlights include earth-friendly, upcycled crafts to take home and a ranger-led bike tour. Throughout the day, guests can meet Bagzilla, a “bag monster” dressed in the average person’s annual plastic bag consumption, and take advantage of free bike rentals from Tarpon Bay Explorers, located 2 miles south of the “Ding” Darling Visitor & Education Center. In the afternoon, watch the award-winning film STRAWS, a 30-minute documentary about plastic straw litter and how we can make a sea of change - one straw at a time. Click here for the day's schedule.
