Did you know going green can be fun and save you money while also helping the planet? Come join us for live music, food trucks, kids’ activities, green living expos, and speakers at Museum of the Albemarle from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. This free event will also feature an opportunity to take a tour to the Amazon Wind Farm and hunt for the Loch Ness Monster in a constructed wetland.


TarWheel Century Ride | April 14
It’s time to shake off winter and get back in the saddle! Bicyclists can choose from 33-, 62- and 100-mile rides along rural roads when they register for the TarWheel Century Ride, now in its 25th year. Organized by the River City Cycling Club, this year’s ride will feature scenic routes throughout the area, with some of the best “support and gear” stops ever (the famous deviled eggs, the smoothies!). Pre-registration is available or sign up on site the day of the event. The start and finish are at Camden County High School, 103 US Highway 158 West, Camden, NC 27921. Registration will start at 7:00 a.m.


Earth Day | April 21
Our celebration of green wouldn’t be complete without Earth Day! Port Discover will kick off Earth Day festivities with a ‘March for Science’ event, beginning at 10:00 am, on the campus of Elizabeth City State University. The fun continues with a multitude of science-related activities at Port Discover until 4:00 pm. Contact Port Discover at (252) 338-6117 for more information.
