Earth Celebration Day & Recycle Fundraiser 2023

April 22 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

UPDATE: Earth Celebration Day made it until 2 p.m. before the rain, thunder and lightning came. Thank you to all who came out to celebrate the Earth with us!

Note about the weather: With April showers in the forecast for late afternoon, we are going forward with our Earth Day plans! When the rain comes (or just before) we may have to wrap up a bit earlier.
We are in need of some rain—what a great way to celebrate the Earth on Earth Day!

The Institute celebrates spring with environmental exhibitors, live music, environmental artists and artisans, a student art show and more.

Spend a day in the park and celebrate spring and the Earth!
