Friday, April 22, is the date for this year’s Earth Day. Even if you missed EPA’s Earth Day on the Mall this past weekend, you can still participate in other Earth Day events. From parades in Birmingham, AL to the Mountain Air Earth Day Fair in Evergreen, CO, communities across the country are celebrating this year.
One way to find an event near you is to check out the EPA’s event map. Simply click on your region and you’ll find many of the events in your area. Happy Earth Day!
At Shaw AFB we’ll be handing out t-shirt vouchers at the gates to anyone that is car-pooling to redeem at our Earth Day gathering at Memorial Park. At Memorial Park we’ll have tables with information, hand-outs and a free lunch. We’ll be labeling storm drains and doing a swamp area clean-up, as well as planting our Arbor Day trees!
We hope to see a good turn-out for the event!
