Children of all ages and their families are welcome to attend our Annual Easter Egg Hunt! Separate areas will be designated for the big kids ages 5 and up and the littler kids ages 4 and under.

Earth Day Clean-up & Garlic Mustard Pull
Saturday, April 22 at the Elvehjem Sanctuary from 9-11am
You can choose to pick up trash or pull garlic mustard (or both)!
To help clear the sanctuary of litter that has accumulated in the sanctuary over the past year please meet at Cottage Grove Road Entrance to the Elvehjem Sanctuary (across from Messiah Lutheran Church). Gloves and garbage bags will be provided.
To help pull garlic mustard please meet Joel at the Elvehjem Park Shelter. Garlic mustard is a highly invasive species that is taking over our beautiful sanctuary and choking off native plants. The best way to keep it under control is to pull it in early spring before the seeds set. A knowledgeable neighbor will lead the garlic mustard pull so no experience is necessary. Please wear work gloves and long sleeves.
*Students are encouraged to attend and will receive a sheet indicating community service hours for participation! We hope to see you there!
