My obligatory "I'm at Earth Day" selfie!

Earth Day usually comes around before I realize it’s near. I’m not the most eco-friendly person but I do love this giant blue marble that we call home and I enjoy a day of celebrating our Earth. This year, I had it circled on my calendar… mostly because Phinizy Nature Center hired me to DJ and emcee their Earth Day event. But, it was circled, nonetheless.

Phinizy Swamp Is Perfect For Earth Day

I was excited to be there to celebrate our planet. It seemed like the perfect sort of place to do so. Afterall, the Phinizy Nature Center is, basically, itself a celebration of all things Earth. You can find all kinds of things in this little 1,100 acre swatch of land off of Lock & Dam Rd., things that fly, crawl, slither, waddle, bite, sting, swim, eat bugs, eat grass, eat people… well, you get the idea.

I’m embarrassed to say that I had never visited the park until I was an adult. Even now, I still have a lot of park left to explore. And, that’s saying a lot because I got some serious steps in during their recent Earth Day event.

A Saturday At Phinizy Swamp Is Time Well Spent

A quick visit to Phinizy Swamp Nature Center’s website will show you that there is so much to see! You can literally accomplish several things at once: time with the fam, exercise, get some time out in the sun, fresh air, all while learning about not just the park, but information about the eco-system that includes the entire CSRA. You can even bring your dog or, as you’ll see in the gallery, other pets.
