Every Day is Earth Day Decatur
Join us April 2024 to celebrate Earth Day in a festival!
On Saturday, April 22, 2023 from 1-4pm, we celebrated Earth Day on Decatur Square. R2D2, a biker scout, Rey, a purple BB8, and we had lots of family fun activities. Free tree seedlings went to participants from our city arborists. Our axolotl, Oshawott, returned with the honeybees, and the number of booths and participants increased dramatically. Participants had fun with yard games, basketball, yoga, and learning about sustainability and the environment from our educational booths. Look for similar fun activities (and maybe returns of fan favorites) in 2024! (see schedule for details and times as they develop) This event was a partnership between Decatur's Environmental Sustainability and Active Living Boards and Decatur First United Methodist Church (celebrating their 200th anniversary this year with the city). We had a great time in 2023 and want to again thank some of our sponsors: City of Decatur, Decatur First UMC, Decatur Cares About Climate, Beecatur, Clarity Fitness., and Core Studios. 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!
