Earth Day Celebrations

Updated on April 20, 2014

It's That Time of Year Again

Flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing, and outdoor activities abound as Earth Day rolls around yet again. April 22 is a time of reflection on how far we have come with regard to recycling, conserving resources, and protecting our Mother Earth from pollution, as well as creating a sense of awareness for those who may not know the threat their behaviors pose to our environment. Sunday, April 27, residents and visitors alike will have the opportunity to continue that mission with music, food and fellowship.

Celebrating Mother Earth, Louisiana Style

This Is Not Your Middle School Celebration

The activities will kick off at noon and continue on until 8:30 that night, so make sure to bring your sunscreen, family and friends.
