Celebrate Earth Day at a Florida State Park

Apr 06, 2016 02:00AM
Since April 22, 1970, millions of Americans have celebrated Earth Day in an effort to keep our ecosystem clean and sustainable. Today, the Earth Day Network works with more than 22,000 partners in 192 countries to continue the environmental movement and more than one billion people participate in Earth Day activities each year.

This April 22nd will mark Earth Day’s 46th Anniversary and Florida State Parks needs your help with keeping our parks clean and safe for our visitors and wildlife. While many state parks are hosting individual events, including coastal cleanups and Earth Day celebrations, Florida State Parks encourages visitors to practice earth-friendly conservation habits year round. Become active in your local environmental groups or look for events at Florida State Parks that encourage cleanups, removal of invasive species or recycling. All Earth Day events and volunteer efforts happening within our parks can be found at www.floridastateparks.org.
