Celebrating Earth!

Wed, April 22, 10 AM - 2 PM

Thanks for being a part of Earth Day Telethon, virtually hosted by the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History!

It's Earth Day's 50th anniversary and we celebrated! Thanks to all who joined up the day of hands-on activities, chats with local experts, and a special virtual welcome from Mayor Betsy Price!  Although the Museum's celebration is over, the job of taking care of the Earth continues!  Happy Earth Day!
