If adopting a greener lifestyle is on your to-do list, chances are you’ll want to check out what’s happening at Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens this weekend.

This Saturday, April 22—the 47th official Earth Day—the Gardens will host “A Partnership for Art, Science and the Natural World,” a presentation that will educate Palm Beach residents about eco-friendly actions they can take. Expert and artist talks, panel presentations, Q&As, interactive learning stations and garden tours will be included on the event’s fun and educational itinerary.

Designed to embrace Ann Norton’s vision for the coexistence of urban life, art and nature, the Earth Day celebration will highlight local organizations including The Lost Bird Project, Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Manatee Lagoon, the Rare Species Conservatory Foundation and the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium.

The Lost Bird Project, a sculpture exhibit currently on display at ANSG through June 25, will be one of the main exhibits, with sculptures artfully recognizing species of North American birds that have been driven to extinction.

Members from the organizations will be sponsoring family friendly activities and presentations throughout the day, and will encourage attendees to sign a pledge, committing to making every day Earth Day. 

The Sculpture Gardens will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with discounted pricing.
