Join others around the globe in a day of splashing, rolling, squishing, sliding, making mud pies, and more!  During this family-friendly event hosted by the Open Space Visitor Center, explore educational stations related to mud and soil, play and cool off in wet mud, make seed balls and mud stencil art, wade through a natural wetland looking for wildlife, and more!  The Nature Action Collaborative for Children and the World Forum for Early Childhood Care and Education in Belfast had the idea of International Mud Day in 2009. Since then, citizens around the world have been delighting in reconnecting with the Earth and the soil and remembering the joys of playing in the mud! Participants are encouraged to bring a bathing suit, change of clothes, a towel, sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of drinking water. Outdoor bathrooms and washing stations will be available during the event. Please call 897-8831 or see www.cabq.gov/openspace for more details.
