Southern Oregon University will celebrate Earth Day from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Friday, April 21, at The Farm at SOU, 155 Walker Ave., Ashland, according to SOU’s website.

More than 30 community organizations and businesses will host educational exhibits, and live entertainment will be featured on The Farm’s Thalden Pavilion stage. Children attendees can bring their bicycle and participate in the “Bike Rodeo,” where they will learn about bicycle safety while running a course.

There will also be a play zone for children at the nearby ScienceWorks Hands-On Museum plaza, featuring chalk art and games. Inside, the science facility will offer a “quiet zone” inside its geodesic dome. The space will feature earplugs, snacks, seating, and quiet activities.
