Ready, Set, Go Have Fun! 

The First Annual Earth Day Earth Run at the Garden City Bird Santuary is scheduled as a family oriented fun time. Like to run? There is a timed 3K race at 10 AM, a 1.5 k race at 11 and a 1k obstacle course race at 11:30.  Enjoy music, displays, tours of the 9 acre sanctuary, special guests, food, mini-cupcakes and a celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the forming of the Village of Garden City's volunteer Environmental Advisory Board.   Free Arbor Day Posters too!

Make a great family day. No charge to come and $20 per race participant, with a T-shirt included. Businesses - ENTER YOUR EMPLOYEES AS A GROUP!

Displays of the activities and research at the lovely arboretum, santuary and Tanners Pond Environmental Center. Special display and sale of native Long Island plants from the Long Island Native Plant Institute.  

Celebrate efforts to make Nassau County an official "Tree Community" recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation.

The funds raised are designated for a solar powered irrigation well needed at the site. It's a $50,000 ticket, but a sustainable means of providing water and saving the cost of treatment and pumping from municipal drinking water sources.  Come on down.  To register for a race, see our website at www.gcbirdsanctuary.org
