Spring is just about here which means it's time to get outside and celebrate it at the Kalamazoo Nature Center.  What better day to do it on also than on Earth Day? The Earth Day event is FREE and offers daylong activities, however, registration is required for the Earth Day 5K and Kids' Raccoon Run. Here are all the details for this great event:
