National Grid Earth Day Celebration

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College commemorates Earth Day with its tenth annual National Grid Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 3pm. This interactive family event will take place on the plaza outside Whitman Theatre at Brooklyn College immediately following the 2pm presentation of Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters: An African Tale. Brooklyn Center's tenth annual National Grid Earth Day Celebration is free and open to the public, with no tickets or reservations required. Tickets to Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters are $15 and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm). Both the performance and the Earth Day Celebration are recommended for ages four and up.

Now in its tenth year, National Grid Earth Day Celebration is designed to educate families on how they can play a role in caring for the Earth and creating a more sustainable future. Interactive family activities, educational materials, and give-away items will highlight the need for conserving energy, recycling in the home, and having a heightened awareness of the environmental and global issues that we face today.  
"National Grid and our employees share a strong commitment to the local communities we serve, from playing a vital role in providing safe, reliable and affordable gas service to partnering with organizations to help identify long-term regional needs and priorities.   Our long-standing partnership with Brooklyn Center's Earth Day event provides a great opportunity for National Grid's Power to Serve employee volunteers to engage with our local communities, especially young children,  about the importance of environmental stewardship," said Ken Daly, President, National Grid New York.

This year's Earth Day Celebration will feature hands-on activities for all ages that will allow attendees to learn about how to take action in helping our planet. Returning favorites include the New York City Fire Department's fire prevention demonstration, an instrument building workshop using recycled and reused materials by educational performance group Bash the Trash, puppeteer Ronny Wasserstrom's Playdate Puppets, circus demonstrations from The Muse Brooklyn, and the bright sounds of Nydia Mata's steel drums. Other activities will include children's yoga with Third Root Yoga, arts and crafts with Skraptacular, face painting, and interactive storytellers.
