KALB is very excited about the changes taking place for this year’s Earth Day & Outdoor EXPO!  A major partnership with Athens State University has made additions to our event possible.  We have more room, more indoor space, and lots of room to “stretch our legs”!

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!

This event is for everyone, so don’t miss it.  If you have kids, bring them!  There will be plenty to do and see to keep them busy all day.  No kids?  This is for you, too!  Check out all there is to offer at this unique local event.

 

STEVE TRASH IS COMING! 

We are also grateful to all of our sponsors! Without them, we would be unable to provide the quality programs offered free to our guests. These include the addition of Steve Trash, Eco Magician and Educator, who will provide three performances thanks to the generous sponsorship by the Limestone County Water and Sewer Authority.

 

POP-UP TALKS!

Watch for a schedule of Pop-Up Talks that will be offered free of charge.  Topics will include rain barrels and water harvesting, sprayer/spreader calibration and soil testing, and possibly more!

RAPTORS AND REPTILES, OH MY!

The Alabama 4H Science School will have a variety of raptors on display, and will provide two formal stage presentations sharing information on these majestic birds of prey and their importance to the environment.  The Athens State University Science Department will display amphibians and reptiles, answer questions, and allow some handling for those brave enough!  There will also be a formal classroom presentation where interesting information will be shared by experts in the field.

 

PETTING ZOO AND KIN STABLES

There will be animals to pet and feed at the Tickled Pink Petting Zoo.  Jim Swanner, owner of KIN Stables and host of WKAC’s All About Horses, will be on hand with his special horse companion, Rosie, talking about horsemanship.  Jim will be happy to answer questions and share his expertise.

 

ASK A MASTER GARDENER – VOTE FOR FAVORITE PAINTED RAIN BARREL

The Limestone County Master Gardeners will be standing ready to answer your gardening questions.  If they don’t know the answer, they know where to find one for you!  While you are there, enjoy the hand-painted rain barrels and vote for your favorite.  Some will be auctioned off.

 

FREE DOOR PRIZE TICKETS

Each guest will receive a door prize at the gate.  All exhibitors will a door prize will have them displayed at their booth.  Once guests decide which door prize they would like to win, the ticket can be placed in that exhibitor’s jar.  Additional door prize tickets will be available for purchase at the KALB booth.
