Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

The Conservancy collects over 5 million pounds of trash from the Park each year. Celebrate Earth Month and learn how you can reduce your impact on the planet to the beat of instruments made from trash with Bash the Trash! Be sure to bring your granola bar wrappers and turn your trash into treasure with TerraCycle as they are woven into a picnic blanket! One lucky participant will get to take it home and use it in the Park!
