Earth Day is coming up and so is spring weather all across Washington! Join us outside on Saturday, April 20 at Seattle Center’s Fisher Pavilion for a family celebration.
Come on by between Noon and 4 p.m. and celebrate with face painting, cool activities and goodie giveaways. Learn how you can help protect the planet starting in your own backyard.
You can also enjoy two performances from the Our Earth cycle of children’s operas about Pacific Northwest animals and people—including people who transform into salmon!—and an ecosystem in danger.
We can’t wait to see you there! For the latest updates and announcements, “like” us on Facebook.
We have partnered with Seattle Opera and the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras and King FM on an opera trilogy, Our Earth, created for younger opera-goers and nature lovers. On Earth Day, you’ll get to see two performances at Fisher Pavilion as part of the fun.
Our Earth tells a story of local animals and people in Puget Sound—and an ecosystem in danger. Heron and the Salmon Girl begins when wild salmon fail to return to the sea one spring. Animals such as Orca, Heron, Turtle, the "Salmon Girl" and a fisherman embark on a journey upriver to find the missing fish.
Our friends continue their journey in Rushing Upriver - closely pursued by a hungry coyote, a treacherous raccoon and a wise raven - in search of a unique white flower with healing properties. Our Earth celebrates Puget Sound and the animals and people who make it so great.
Nature Conservancy scientists helped inform the opera story by sharing expert information about the salmon life cycle and what they need to thrive. You can see all the drama, the music, the voices this Earth Day.
