On Earth Day we need you to take a stand so that together, we can show the world a new direction – to think about how we can protect our planet and preserve it for the future. Environmental partners will be on hand to show you what you can do. Booths will feature family-friendly activities including arts and craft, science discovery, and educational information.  There will be a scavenger hunt with small prizes for all participants and entry in larger prize drawings. The day will be filled with live music from Danny Maika.

For 48 years, Earth Day has been bringing communities and organizations together to advocate for a healthier environment and a sustainable life. The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970 activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life to share their concerns about each citizen’s critical role in the environment. Their actions led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. Now over one billion people in 192 countries participate in Earth Day activities, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
