EcoFest is an interactive environmental event that features crafts, lawn games, musical performances, and family fun events. With thousands of attendees each year, this free two-day festival is the culmination of the Town’s month-long focus on environmental education.
Crowd favorite, Erik’s Reptiles Edventures, will return to teach attendees about wildlife and will have live creatures on hand. The Red Storm Drum and Dance Troupe will have interactive storytelling and workshops.
This year’s EcoFest will feature Volunteers for Wildlife who will provide tidbits about Long Island’s wildlife. Bash the Trash will give musical performances using instruments constructed from recycled and reused materials. The Long Island Children’s and Science Museums will also deliver entertaining and informational presentations.
The Central Park Zoo, Barry G. and Green Meadow Farms will also be in attendance for the festival.
