Earth Day in the Park!

Invite your friends!

EARTH DAY 2015 is on! Forty five years after it began, a committee of local organizers is keeping the global celebration alive in Eugene/Springfield! This year’s event, April 25th at Alton Baker Park, replaces the recently- canceled annual observance originally scheduled for April 18th at EWEB (River Place Plaza). “EARTH DAY IN THE PARK!” is the theme for what promises to be a fun Saturday for planetary citizens of all persuasions. All will be inspired, educated and motivated by the day of activities, workshops, music and a speakers program addressing the urgent environmental issues facing our planet today.

The event runs from 2 to 6pm, with a broadcast-ready speakers program around the midpoint. Stay tuned for more details as participating organizations, speakers and musicians are confirmed!
