STEM—Save The Environment of Moorestown—will hold its annual Open Space Festival ("STEM Steps Out") at Strawbridge Lake Park this Sunday, Oct. 6, and there's a wealth of things to do, whether you're into learning about nature or you just want to stuff your face and listen to some tunes.
Here are just some of the activities available to attendees:
- Canoe rentals
- A fishing contest (plus instructions from a fly fishing expert)
- Face painting
- Live entertainment from local band Lost in Brunswick
To emphasize the "green" aspect of the event, Lost in Brunswick's performance will be fully solar-powered, said organizer Elizabeth Endres. And STEM president Kathy Huffman said a fully electric Tesla car will be on display (though no test drives).
The annual festival is intended to educate the community about environmental issues, both local and global, Huffman said.
"And also to get out into the open space—just to appreciate the beauty we have in our midst," said Endres.
"It's usually just fun for the family," added Huffman.
The event goes from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday at Strawbridge Lake Park, on Kings Highway. Admission is free (though donations are appreciated).
