Along the way, visit earth-friendly exhibitors and take advantage of recycling opportunities, educational booths, demos, and a few freebies.

Squirrel Lake Park will be "kid-central," featuring guided hikes, crafts, nature exhibits, fairy-house building, and fishing. Dress for outdoor fun and enjoy this free event. Sponsored by Williams Subaru, Healthy Home Market, HAWK, Great Outdoors University/NCWF, and the Town of Matthews.
