Earth Day celebration at Eagle Marsh Sunday

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Hundreds of people came out Sunday for northeast Indiana’s largest Earth Day celebration.

The festivities took place at Eagle Marsh on Fort Wayne’s southwest side. The event featured discovery stations and other free activities.

A pair of bald eagles is also nesting in the area, and visitors got a chance to see the eggs from a special viewing area.  Organizers said the goal is to introduce more families to nature and honor groups working to protect the environment.

“This is a really great community event for the environmental groups and folks working to improve sustainability and improve how their companies function to become more green,” Betsy Yankowiak.

Eagle Marsh is the largest nature preserve in Allen County. It’s open from dawn to dusk every day. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
