"Video games are cool, but you should get out a lot," says 11-year-old Dorian Hard, who soaked up the Earth Day festivities at Wesselman Woods on Friday - something that was missed last year due to the pandemic.

Friday, Wesselman Woods hosted an Earth Day Celebration with back-to-back nature-based events. From guided hikes, animal encounters, and even live music, the organization had something for everyone to enjoy.

Although Earth Day was Thursday, Wesselman woods is continuing to celebrate to urge those to disconnect from the screens and connect with nature.

Kristina Arwood, Director of Marketing says "it is so important to enjoy nature, and we are the lungs of Evansville. These trees provide oxygen to us so it's important to protect it and enjoy it."

The organization just launched applications for summer camps as well, but spots are limited this year.

"For ages 6-9, or 9-12, its the junior forest league, and our mastering the elements summer camp," Arwood says.

We're waking up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. As we head into the afternoon, temperatures won't rise much. Highs are only going to be in the mid to upper 30s. Skies will be mostly cloudy with a chance of flurries overnight. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
