The Springfield Museums have every reason to celebrate 40 years of Earth Day -- they celebrate nature every day at the museums.  Visitors on Sunday, April 18 get an extra dose of outdoor fun for the regular admission price as the Museums Celebrate Earth Day. Live music by bluegrass band, Boys of the Landfill, will fill the air as you roam the grounds examining live owls, hawks, and other birds of prey. Renewable energy and solar power demos, environmental projects by students, and a plethora or exhibits and demonstrations will keep you busy as well. Pack a lunch, bring a blanket, and indulge afterward with free ice cream. Visitors also get to take home free tree seedlings.  Admission for adults is $12.50, and $6.50 for kids ages 3-17. Call 413-263-6800 for more information.
