A hands-on, community-wide event, “Earth’s Future is in Our Hands,” will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 5, at the Buker Community Center, 22 Armory St., in Augusta, according to a news release from the Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Augusta.

Sponsored by the church, the event will focus on what individuals and families can do to protect the environment. The event includes an interactive photography program, “Nature Up Close and Personal,” as well as a program produced by young people, “The Importance of Bees.” Other programs include “Solar and Other Renewables” and “Energy Saving Programs We Can Use. For younger children there will be a workshop on reusable crafts.
