The modern environmental movement started in 1970. People from around the world celebrate the movement’s anniversary every April 22nd. Referred to as Earth Day, people celebrate it by honoring the earth. You can do just that at the Sarasota Earth Day Celebration at Oscar Sherer State Park. This event takes place from 10 am until 4 pm and is free to attend. It is packed to the brim with activities, so it is well worth stopping by for a few hours.
What to Expect
If you attend the celebration at Oscar Sherer State Park, you can expect to have a lot of fun. The event will be packed with family-friendly activities, such as tram tours, photo exhibits, kayaking, nature walks, and more. You can also learn how to paddleboard at the event.
In addition, the celebration will have activities just for kids. These activities include a puppet show and a coloring contest. If you have young children, they are certain to have a blast.
Along with all of these activities, you can enjoy some live music, as well as fun items from arts and craft vendors. You can also buy native plants when you attend the festival.
Eat Lunch on the House
You’re going to want some grub when you attend the Earth Day celebration. If you don’t want to pay for your food, you just need to volunteer some time. The organizers intend to plant more than 5,000 native plants during the event, and they need your help. If you do some planting between 10 am and noon, they will feed you for free. They will also give you a parking pass so you don’t have to pay to park. It’s a good way to give back to the community, and you get rewarded in the process. That’s a pretty sweet exchange.
If you’re serious about helping the earth, you also need to think about the vehicle that you drive. Upgrade to a reliable and efficient Honda so you can do your part year-round.
