SPICER — Community members celebrated Mother Earth and all it has to offer Saturday for Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center's annual Earth Day event in Spicer.

Fat tire bikes, kayaks and canoes were available to try out and trails were open for those interested in going on a self-guided interpretive hike. Exhibits were open along with a scavenger hunt for willing participants.

People were able to purchase recycled gear as well.

In the past, food was served and live demonstrations were held, but the event was orchestrated a little differently this year due to coronavirus restrictions.
