Earth Events

Make a difference this weekend. 

With the help of documentaries like “Our Planet” and expanding education, climate change is gaining more attention across the world. Each year efforts to save our planet are increasing, such as with the ban on plastic straws. Earth Day is an opportunity for everyone to take a break from their busy schedules and get involved by reflecting on our natural surroundings and working to preserve and protect them.  Here is a list of all the local events.
