Monday marks Earth Day, but hundreds of people across metro-Atlanta will mark the occasion Saturday.
In Atlanta, dozens of volunteers will plant native grass along the Eastside Trail at the Atlanta Beltline. The grass will provide food and protection for birds, butterflies and bees.
In Gwinnett County, the Environmental and Heritage Center will offer a wide-range of family activities including games, guided nature hikes, and face painting. There will even a Great Horned Owl at 11 a.m.
The event is from 10 a.m. until three p.m. Tickets cost $5 for those over the age of 13. All other tickets are $3, with kids under the age of two getting in free.
