Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the town board announced the town’s 10th Annual EcoFest, to be held on Saturday, May 2 and Sunday, May 3, from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m., at Clark Botanic Garden in Albertson.
EcoFest is a yearly favorite for members of the North Hempstead community. It offers activities for the whole family, including crafts, lawn games, musical performances and other engaging family events. Over the past decade, thousands of North Hempstead residents have participated in this program, which culminates with the town’s month-long focus on environmental education.
“Clark Botanic Garden is a gem in North Hempstead’s beautiful park system. Every year the town has celebrated EcoFest as a way to highlight our efforts to make North Hempstead safer, cleaner and more beautiful, while also giving residents the opportunity to enjoy family fun and entertainment,” said Bosworth on the decennial of EcoFest.
This year, the Hip Pickles will entertain the crowd with their dramatic drum beats. Erik’s Reptiles will return again to teach kids about wildlife, as the kids engage with live animals. The whole family can also interact with the Central Park Zoo education department, which will also be on hand.
All attendees can enjoy the 12 beautifully manicured acres of Clark Botanic Garden which includes labeled gardens, trees, ponds and streams, and provides an oasis of peace and aesthetic enjoyment for all. Clark Botanic Garden is located at
193 I.U. Willets Road in Albertson.
