Celebrate at the largest Earth Day event in Central Florida on Saturday April 21st from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at beautiful Lake Eola Park in Orlando. The event will include healthy living and eco-friendly exhibitors, speakers, and presentations; non-profits; fun and games for kids; dog and cat adoptions; restaurant booths; environmental and humane education; artist and craft corners; and live music and entertainment. Central Florida Earth Day draws both committed environmentalists and those who want to learn more protecting our health, the planet, and its inhabitants.
One way to observe Earth Day and save money is by reducing household energy use. Strategically planted trees, shrubs, and vines in the landscape create shade to cool your home, helping your AC unit run more efficiently. Trees also cool outdoor spaces for you and your family to enjoy all summer.
