Earth Day – April 22 – is an internationally recognized event that celebrates this planet. The City’s involvement in Earth Day highlights our commitment to being a good steward of our natural resources.
This year, the City is participating in Earth Day events with other community organizations to better leverage our collective efforts and resources. City departments are partnering with these community groups to educate residents about how they can be good environmental stewards, as well as to foster participation in various City and community programs that encourage conservation, efficient use of resources, and enjoyment of the natural environment.
