Event Description

Stop down to the River Museum to celebrate Earth Day and engage in a day full of activities centered around conservation efforts in agriculture and our watersheds! General admission grants access to the day’s activities and visitors who bring canned food items will receive $5 off admission (one discount per transaction, unlimited number of canned items!) All donations will benefit the St. Vincent de Paul food bank and the Dubuque community!

Explore the exhibits on our 14-acre campus, including our newly-renovated Rivers to the Sea, as well as Creature Features, artifact chats, and new activities in the Makerspace, sponsored by Nutrien Ag Solutions! Interact with local and regional partners in the Boatyard to learn about conservation programs and bring home a white pine sapling thanks to Wagner Nursery!

97.7 WGLR will be onsite from 10 AM – 12 PM in the Mississippi River Center for a live radio broadcast and guests can enjoy live music in the Boatyard from Barefoot and Sunshine from 10 AM – 3 PM. Dimensional Brewing Company will provide Conservation Cream Ale for purchase at the event from 11 AM – 3 PM. A portion of each sale by Dimensional supports the River Museum’s conservation efforts. 

Other regularly scheduled activities like Behind the Scenes Tours, Stingray Feedings, and movies in the 4D Theater will still be available for purchase at the box office.

This event is funded, in part, by Nutrien Ag Solutions and 97.7 Country, WGLR.
