SMO's Earth Day events include upcycling activities with the SMO Gardens team, a talk on aquaculture, vermiculture and the SMO Gardens’ rabbits at noon, a lady bug release at 1 p.m., a release of approximately 100 butterflies at 2 p.m., as well as activities with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, Oklahoma Gardeners Association, and Oklahoma Green Schools Program. All activities are included with general admission.

Guests can continue the sustainability conversation at home with a visit to the museum’s Science Shop, which will have a variety of Earth Day-themed items including butterfly, ladybug and ant habitats, live butterfly larvae and birdhouse kits.
