“The environment is where we all meet; where all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share.”

~Lady Bird Johnson

Since 1970, Earth Day has provided a day to reflect on how our way of living impacts our environment. We take a day to bring awareness to what we can do as individuals, community members, and global citizens to help our planet thrive. This year Earth Day officially falls on Sunday, April 22nd. There are many fun events around town to share this day with our family and friends.
