Celebrate our planet at the Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS) annual Earth Day Extravaganza on Saturday, April 22, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Banshee Reeks Nature Preserve.
Residents are invited to learn about environmental issues through hands-on activities and nature-themed crafts, participate in educational demonstrations and enjoy guided tours and family-friendly festival music and games while discovering ways to live more sustainably.
The Banshee Reeks Nature Preserve is located at 21085 The Woods Road, Leesburg, and is a designated Virginia Treasure. Only a short drive from downtown Leesburg, the preserve is nestled alongside two miles of Goose Creek, a State Scenic River. The preserve’s 695 acres of forests, succession fields, ponds, and streams provide residents the chance to explore and experience the exceptional beauty of Loudoun’s natural habitats, wetlands, and waterways.
The Earth Day Extravaganza will be hosted rain or shine. In the case of severe weather, a cancellation notice will be posted on the Loudoun County website at loudoun.gov/prcs and PRCS social media accounts. Available parking is limited; consider traveling as a group to the event.
