Earth Day is recognized annually on April 22 and is considered to be the largest secular observance in the world, marked by over a billion people every year as a day of action to change human behavior and create global, national and local environmental policy changes.
Rocky River Public Library will celebrate Earth Day this Saturday, April 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on our Front Lawn. We’ll have representatives from green-friendly organizations who’ll be here to help you learn ways you can be kinder to our planet, opportunities for recycling, seedlings for planting, crafts to make, a plant swap from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., and more!
The good, clean Earth Day fun will continue on Sunday, April 24, with a volunteer opportunity to help clean up Rocky River Park. Meet us there, starting at 9:00 a.m.
Sure hope to see you there.
