Earth Day Celebration Set for Saturday, April 18, at Port Discover

Elizabeth City, NC — Celebrate Earth Day at Port Discover on Saturday, April 18, and learn about reducing... the most important of the 3 R’s—Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! Port Discover’s Youth Scientists will lead a program of ideas on how to reduce the items you use and consume. The program is free and is set for 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm. No reservations are required.

Youth Scientists are middle and high school students who volunteer with Port Discover by developing interactive science programs. The program is made possible with support of the Judge Thomas Watts Memorial Fund of the Northern Albemarle Community Foundation and the Elizabeth City Jaycees.

Port Discover is located at 613 East Main Street, Elizabeth City. Port Discover’s hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Programs can be arranged at other times for special groups. For more information call 252-338-6117 or www.portdiscover.org.

Port Discover is a community-based, non-profit organization, established to enhance the public’s understanding and enjoyment of science through engaging programs, activities, and exhibits. Elizabeth City State University along with the Elizabeth City Area Chamber of Commerce initiated the project that has attracted broad community support, including Elizabeth City Morning Rotary, College of the Albemarle, Albemarle Hospital, Museum of the Albemarle, Elizabeth City Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools.
