Check in at the Information Booth to find out about the children’s activities at the exhibitor booths. Pick up an "ice cream" token for your child so they can stop by Harper's booth and get a free ice cream treat. Bring a paper or cloth sack to hold all our earth friendly giveaways that show you how to make non-plastic choices in order to become a more earth friendly resident of planet earth.

Exhibitors are feature activities for children that will be both educational and fun!

— Walk through time on the park path and discover Oregon's geological history. There will be over 30 stations along the park pathway and with your travel guide sheet in hand, learn about earth’s geological events, starting with our planet’s history 4.6 billion years ago to the present day as each step you make takes you through 15 to 20 million years “at a time”.

— Come dressed up in a costume you have made and be an “endangered species” for the afternoon. Then join the procession along the park path as the insect, plant, or animal that you have become for the day - buzz like a bee, hoot like an owl, howl like a wolf, roar like a tiger, fly like an eagle. And don’t forget to greet “Big Boy”, the world’s largest monarch caterpillar cocoon.

— Enjoy Story Time on the lawn with the Phoenix Library.

— Plant a flower seed in a biodegradable pot and learn how to plant and grow veggies at the Farm to School Program exhibit. At Cornucopia Acres you can purchase a native plant for your garden.

— Participate in an art and craft activity - shape clay pottery, paint a rock, draw a picture or take a few minutes to play a game with your friends at the playground.

— Bring your picnic lunch and blanket and eat on the park lawn while you listen to and watch the performances on stage. Tingo’s food truck will be at the Park and don’t forget to stop by the Ethos Academy just up the street and enjoy food from Loncheria las Reyes and lots of outdoor games being held there as well.
