Long before the weather showed signs of warming and trees began to bloom, KALB staff and volunteers were thinking about our Earth Day Celebration.
We get very excited about this event because of what we are able to offer back to our community. Thanks to the wonderful businesses and individuals that are sponsoring the event this year, we will again offer all activities, food, and door prizes free of charge! This is important to us because we want all families, no matter what their financial situation, to be able to come and enjoy this day of fun and learning.
The people of Athens and Limestone County have made great changes over the last 10 years in their appreciation and concern for our environment. We know that the majority of people will do the right thing when they know the facts and the consequences of their actions. Educating children and adults about human impact on the environment is critical to behavior change.
We believe the Earth Day Celebration fills that need for education. Bringing the people, exhibitors, educators, and fun together equals change of hearts and minds. We don't preach, we teach and that makes all the difference.
This year, the Tourism Board is teaming up with KALB to offer an Outdoor Expo at our Earth Day Celebration. These exhibitors will focus on products, services, or experiences connected with outdoor activities available in Limestone County.
For more information about this event or how to register as an exhibitor (must have product, service, or information pertaining to litter abatement, recycling/recycled products, community greening, or healthy lifestyles), contact us. We want to hear from you!
