Earth Day Birthday Party 2017

Earth Day Birthday Party at McGuckin Hardware

Celebrate Earth Day with us!

You’re invited to our earth-friendly product vendor celebrations! Join us for product demos, information sharing, product giveaways, an in-store scavenger hunt, and kids’ activities!

In an Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Tree Recovery Program brought to you by the Arbor Day Foundation and City of Boulder Forestry Department, the first 300 interested customers can receive a 1-gallon size tree sapling to take home and plant (first come, first serve; tree species include Kentucky Coffeetrees, Catalpa and Hackberry). Forestry representatives will be on hand for tips on how to plant the young trees and keep them healthy in our Colorado climate, and EAB experts will also be here discussing the effects of the borer on local ash trees, and offering options in treating or replacing these trees.

The first 300 interested customers can also receive a free packet of wildflowers suitable for the health of local pollinators, compliments of Tru Green.

So far, our vendors and manufacturers include:

Food & beverage samples will include:

Activities include:

  • Thorne Nature Experience (“Nature Artifacts” and “Dino Dig” hands-on kids’ activities)
