Snow seems in shorter and shorter supply today, crocuses are peaking out from the ground, and here at ECHO there are more and more muddy tracks near our front doors. Yes, it seems like Spring has finally sprung, heralding the beginning of Mud Season! Everyone here at ECHO gets excited this time of year because Mud Season leads to our annual Mudfest mayhem!

Though ECHO’s Earth Week’s Mudfest is 9-days long, the muddy fun will be happening for eight days, April 20th through Saturday, April 27th and NEW this year, on the 9th day, Sunday, April 28, we’ll be rinsing off our booth for our first Citizen Science Day!
Citizen science is an important part of data collection for scientists all over the world. ECHO guests will learn about the various projects they can be involved in to help scientists gather data and study local and national science projects on a myriad of topics. Citizen science is a fun and engaging way to be involved and make it easy for each of us to act as stewards for our environment.
