The festival features hands-on educational activities for all ages from noon until 5:00 p.m., and live entertainment on several stages from noon until 6:00 p.m.
Earth Day fosters both individual and corporate environmental awareness and action through creative exhibits and activities produced by over 400 volunteers. Regional music and food remind us to enjoy and celebrate the unique culture and beauty of our state.
Our new exhibits, Plant and Seed Swap, Alternative Fuel Vehicles, Youth Bike Safety Simulation, and Earth Market will join Earth for Children, Wetlands Tent, Earth Walk, and Recycle Fair to offer a wealth of opportunities to learn how we can work together to build a sustainable environment!
