WBEZ & Adler Planetarium Partner For Three-Day 'Earthfest' Event

Chicago public radio station WBEZ-FM and Chicago's Adler Planetarium are teaming up to present a weekend-long celebration of our planet. "Earthfest" will take place at the Planetarium from Friday morning through Sunday afternoon.

Numerous events are planned for these three days, which will allow visitors to "rediscover the brilliance of Earth and its place in the Universe" via hands-on activities, discussions, storytimes, displays, and even an astronomy poetry slam. The weekend is open to all and family-friendly.

Along with all of the science presentations and activities, four WBEZ-FM live broadcasts from the Planetarium's Johnson Family Star Theater will take place:
- "WBEZ Chicago Worldview with Jerome McDonnell," Friday at noon
- "Front and Center: Heat of the Moment," a panel discussion about climate change, 1:00pm
- "WBEZ's Chicago Nerdette" podcast, Saturday at 3:00pm
- "WBEZ Chicago Worldview with Jerome McDonnell," Saturday at 4:00pm

Outside of the basic admission charge to the Adler Planetarium, there is no additional fee to attend the "Earthfest" events or WBEZ-FM live broadcasts.
