Nature center programs help celebrate earth week

Mystic - The Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center will sponsor three Earth Week events this week in conjunction with the StoneRidge community. On Tuesday, a Green Cleaning Workshop will give participants the chance to learn how to make their own laundry detergent, dish soap, and other items from ecologically friendly materials.

On Thursday, a workshop call Upcycled Sweaters will teach participants to turn worn winter sweaters into something new. Participants are asked to bring fabric, scissors and a sewing machine, if they have one. The center will supply needles, thread and sweaters, or participants may bring their own. Both programs will run from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the center.

On Saturday at 10 a.m., a free presentation by arborist Nick Vallas of Bartlett Tree Experts of Essex will take place at the Coogan Farm, 162 Greenmanville Ave. He will lead a talk about pruning ornamental trees and shrubs. Participants will take home a free, white oak sapling.

To register for all programs, call (860) 536-1216.
