Green Scene

You can't get a tan from the glow of your Facebook profile. So strap on your Chacos and slather on the BullFrog, because Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm and Connemara Meadow Preserve, both in Allen, want to help you replenish your vitamin D supply. EarthFest 2010 is a free, family-friendly festival featuring activities for all ages. With all the cooking, kayaking and canoeing demonstrations, presentations by the Heard Museum and live music, the last thing you'll hear is "When can we leave?!" The most intriguing aspect might be the educational seminar on holistic pet care with Dr. Shawn Messonnier, a Martha Stewart Radio host. The event is a collaboration between Allen Reads, Alliance for a Healthier Allen and a community-based environmental/ecological consortium. You can also join in the Keep Allen Beautiful-sponsored Watters Branch cleanup project before the festival. For more information, call 972-747-8000 or visit
Sat., April 10, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 2010
