Whole Earth Celebrates Earth Day 2015

See what we're doing for Earth Day 2015

This year marks the 45th anniversary of the first Earth Day in 1970. Traditionally, Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd, but here in Texas Earth Day events are scattered throughout the month and a few even take place in March. Southlake was an early bird with their Green Fest on March 28th. Whole Earth was there for the day along with SmartWool.

Earth Day Texas - Dallas

Dallas

Dallas is home to the largest Earth Day celebration in the state: Earth Day Texas. It runs for three days, April 24th, 25th and 26th, 10 am to 6 pm, has something for everyone and it’s free. We’re excited about the NOAA’s Science on a Sphere – an animated globe showing Earth’s atmosphere, weather, oceans, and land demonstrating anything from environmental trends and human impacts to super storms and today’s weather. There will be exhibits, speakers, the Eco-Expo and lots and lots of music including an appearance by Paul Winter and his Consort. The National Park Service will be kicking off their Centennial year with special events throughout the weekend. We’ll be there too. Hope to see you!
