The weather may have prompted Essex County to cancel the cherry blossom festival tomorrow, but the county’s seventh annual Earth Day celebration is still on for today, Saturday, April 2.

This free, family-friendly event at the Essex County Environmental Center in Roseland offers residents the opportunity to participate in hands-on educational games and activities, canoe trips, bird walks, environmental information booths, enjoy live nature-themed music and shop for environmentally themed goods and services.

The Essex County Beekeepers Society station will show the inner workings of a bee hive and offer local, award-winning honey and other bee products for purchase. The New Jersey Woodturners will demonstrate how art is created from found pieces of wood and fallen tree branches. NJ Audubon will lead visitors on bird walks, members of the Essex County Master Gardeners will be on hand to talk about horticulture and composting, and the 4-H Club will present its Annual Fair. Canoe rides will be offered and there is a simulated dinosaur dig for children.

Admission is free but merchandise from vendors will be for sale.  The fair runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Essex County Environmental Center, which is located at 621B Eagle Rock Avenue in Roseland.

Verona Environmental Commission member Tony Saltalamacchia gave a recycling barrel to resident Jane Niven at Verona's Earth Day event.
