Take a walk on the wildlife's side

OMNI Center for Peace, Justice and Ecology along with Town Branch Neighborhood and friends of the World Peace Wetland Prairie invite the public to a spectacular Earth Day Celebration from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 18, 2010, at World Peace Wetland Prairie, nestled right here in south Fayetteville.

This event promises to be a terrific way to start off a week-long observance of the worldwide 40th anniversary of Earth Day, specifically designated as April 22 in 1970.

Sing, play, get down and dirty at Mother Nature's knee. Stop and listen to the bird's songs and watch the butterfly dances along the way.

Join in on the celebration of five years of being enriched by this special neighborhood park and public sanctuary for people and other living things in the Town Branch Watershed.

Music by Emily Kaitz, Still on the Hill and friends, seeds to spread and share, family fun and games, painting on the giant doodle pad, earth games and more will be up for the offering.

The World Peace Wetland Prairie is a unique neighborhood-developed and maintained, city-owned nature park at 1121 S. Duncan Avenue, Fayetteville, AR

From MLK Blvd.— Turn south on Hill Avenue, west on 11th Street, and curve south on South Duncan Avenue. WPWP is about 100 feet on the right.
From 15th Street— Turn north on South Duncan Avenue and travel past 12th St,, WPWP is on the left.

Please be aware of the presence of native, but hazardous and aptly named, poison ivy. It's suggested to bring gloves, clippers, green thumb, lawn chair, picnic, song or poem to share, hat, sunscreen and smiles.

World Peace Wetland Prairie was made possible by a partnership of the OMNI Center for Peace, Justice and Ecology, the City of Fayetteville, Audubon Arkansas, Tyson Foods, James Mathias Rentals, the Fayetteville Natural Heritage Association and the Town Branch Neighborhood Association.
