John Muir Birthday–Earth Day Celebration; Saturday, April 22, 2017, 10:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the John Muir National Historic Site, Martinez, CA

In addition to our booth (opportunities for several hands on activities to understand chemical concepts), the event at the John Muir National Historic Site  features more than 50 exhibitors offering a host of Earth Day activities and environmental awareness information for children and adults, Scottish bagpipers and other live music, NPS Junior Ranger activities,
tours of the John Muir historic home, silent auctions, a recycled fashion show, birthday cake and guest speakers.

The California Section returns to the John Muir National Historic Site in Martinez, CA. for this year’s celebration of Earth Day (and John Muir’s birthday) on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017, 10 AM to 4 PM.  We will join dozens of other community groups to share ideas, souvenirs, and hands-on activities with hundreds of visitors.  At the Cal ACS canopy location, demonstrations and hands-on activities will relate to the ACS Earth Day 2017 theme, “Chemistry Helps Feed the World.”  We will have copies of Celebrating Chemistry (in English and Spanish) with activities that families can try at home, as well as Periodic Table wallet cards, UV-Detection cards and other cool souvenirs.

We are looking for volunteers for the April 22nd event. Preferred shifts are from 10-1 PM and 1-4 PM.  Please contact or
