The Inland Empire Utilities Agency and the City of Chino will be hosting a two-day Earth Day celebration at the Chino Creek Wetlands and Educational Park on April 17 and 18.

The free Earth Day event will be open to schools for pre-scheduled field trips between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 17 and then will be open to the public on Thursday, April 18 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The event provides fun, interactive opportunities for the public to learn how they can be environmental stewards and protect

natural resources. Students and the public will learn about water resources, how compost benefits the soil, the diversity and importance of the region’s habitat, and the importance of proper recycling.

The student event provides opportunities to participate in the Water Discovery Program with engaging lessons and activities about the water cycle, recycling, animals and habitats, wetlands, and water usage. Students will experience an animal encounter, enjoy an environmental show, and observe the wetlands and its functions.

The public event includes environmental exhibits, document shredding, free giveaways, hands-on earth-friendly activities, environmental show performances, and animal encounters.

The Chino Creek Wetlands and Educational Park has two lots, located at 6075 Kimball Avenue and 15975 El Prado Road in Chino.
