Earth Day is officially April 22, but just as every day should be Mother’s Day, it’s never too early to get in the spirit to save and celebrate Spaceship Earth. Join the Earth Day Festival Planning Committee, the Clean Energy Coalition, and the Leslie Science and Nature Center as they celebrate a few days early with the 45th Annual Earth Day Festival. 40 locale environmental organizations will be there to pass out information. Presentations will continue throughout the day on topics like “Exploring Aquaponics,” “Energy Efficiency in Your Home,” and more. There will also be live entertainment (for kids and adults), animal displays, hikes through the Black Pond Woods and other hands-on activities. Learn how to make Earth Day more than just a once-a-year celebration by incorporating sustainable practices into your daily life. As always, the festival itself will be a zero waste event thanks to the work of Recycle Ann Arbor. Parking is in high demand, so get in the spirit of the event and bike or take the bus to the festival.
