On April 26th, from 9am to 4pm, Bonnet House Museum & Gardens will be hosting a very special celebration to commemorate Earth Day. Besides touring the beautiful grounds and historic house museum filled with a delightful collection of art and personal treasures from the Bartlett family, families will enjoy Native American storytelling with Zen WhiteCloud and a live animal presentation with two birds of prey by Everett Osceola and Rey Becerra. The day’s activities also include two performances by the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra with old family favorites, a sing-a-long with Chris Bigney, a Birch State Park conservation efforts lecture, and food that will delight all your senses from Flour Power Food Truck.
Earth Day marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970, bringing concerns about the preservation of our natural resources front and center. With its gorgeous gardens, winding nature trails and native wildlife – including the occasional swan and monkey – inhabiting the grounds, Bonnet House has always been considered one of the nation’s foremost environmental preserves. We invite you to share this Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 26th, 9am to 4pm (last our begins at 3:30pm) at discounted rates – adult tickets cost $10 and children 12 and under enjoy free admission.
The story told at Bonnet House spans and parallels a wide swath of American history and makes a visit to the estate a uniquely educational and entertaining experience. Bonnet House is located at 900 North Birch Road, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304. For more information and details, please contact Linda Schaller at (954) 703-2606 or [email protected].
