Join Us! AFS is Hosting ECO Fest and Nature Playdate on May 6

Plans are well underway for ECO Fest at AFS on May 6. It’s a full morning of activities focused on the environment and playing in the outdoors. The events are free and the public is invited so please let your friends know.

Here is the schedule of events:

ECO Fest – 9 a.m. to noon
Clean out your closets, cabinets, shelves, garage, attic or shed and donate all of your unwanted, gently used items in one stop. Click on the links below to view complete lists of acceptable items. 

  • New this year! We will be hosting a sports equipment donation/exchange program with Leveling the Playing Field. Drop off gently used cleats, balls, bats and other sports equipment ahead of time in boxes located outside of the School’s divisional offices and/or come to the event and trade your unwanted items in a give one-take one exchange.
  • Habitat for Humanity and GreenDrop  will be on site to collect household items, building supplies and more.
  • E-cycling of computers, TVs ($20 charge) and just about anything with a cord will be provided by Gigabiter.

Nature Playdate & Build – 10 a.m. to noon
A morning of fun activities for children ages 3 through 14. Come out and enjoy these and many more activities:

  • Fairy house and fort building
  • Designing boats and musical instruments from natural and recycled materials
  • Insect and marble mazes
  • Musical performances
  • Snacks from Whole Foods and Kind Bars
  • New this year, student-led tours of the AFS Arboretum and Class of ’64 Tree Tour!

In preparation for our Nature Build project, hosted in conjunction with the Penn State Abington Arts Program, we are collecting newspapers. Collection boxes are located outside the School’s divisional offices.

Nature Playdate will be moved inside in the event of rain.
