Every Day is Earth Day Decatur
Thanks for joining us in 2022 to celebrate Earth Day!
Please join us again in 2023!
Thanks to those of you who joined us for our festival in 2022! On Saturday, April 23rd from 10am-2pm, we had lots of family fun activities at Decatur Recreation Center (next to Decatur Library). We were happy to hand out reusable straws and coloring books from the Environmental Sustainability Board, frisbees and squishy balls from Active Living, and tree seedlings and milkweed seeds from our city arborists. Our axolotl, Oshawott, was a big attraction (no offense, composting worms and honeybees...you were great, too, and much harder working!). Participants had fun with yard games, yoga, and learning about sustainability and the environment from our educational booths. This event was a partnership between Decatur's Environmental Sustainability and Active Living Boards and Decatur First United Methodist Church. We had a great time and want to thank some of our sponsors: City of Decatur, Decatur First UMC, Decatur Cares About Climate, Beecatur, and Clarity Fitness. We're going to do it again next year! We're actively looking for more partners, so if you'd like to join us, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Earth Day is every day! We encourage you to get outdoors and enjoy nature. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the outdoors and celebrate our home - Planet Earth!
