Earth Day features dozens of stations and activities including:
Aquatic Conservation Facility Tour
The conservation story of the Silvery Minnow is a very compelling one; biologists of the ABQ BioPark Aquatic Conservation Facility rear silvery minnow for reintroduction to the Rio Grande and conduct on-going research to understand the reproductive behavior and habitat requirements of this endangered fish.
Take a tour of the ACF during the Earth Day event and find out more about the research and conservation efforts in place to protect and restore populations of the Rio Grande Silvery Minnow and several other native Rio Grande invertebrate and fish species.

Children's Seed Festival
At the Botanic Garden, activities on April 23rd will include our annual Children's Seed Festival, which is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Albuquerque. Celebrate the connections between seeds, plants and humans with some "seed-happy" people during this annual event at the Children’s Fantasy Garden.
Earth Day activities (including lectures, workshops and demonstrations) are free with admission. For more information, please call (505) 764-6214.
