For 40 years, Earth Day has been celebrated around the world in the hopes that it would foster enthusiasm for conservation and remind us that we are all responsible for keeping the world green. This is  the 5th year that Staunton has had an Earth Day celebration and the first year we are expanding our celebrations to an Earth Week. See the full list of events on our events page.

This year Earth Day Staunton will feature displays, informational demonstrations, and interactive learning opportunities from many local environmental organizations. The Wildlife Center of Virginia will present two educational programs featuring live, native wildlife. Other activities include performances by local musicians, water tasting, runoff pollution demonstrations, various games, nature touchables, sapling giveaways, and face painting.  More than 30 organizations plan to participate. See the full list on our exhibitors page.

Earth Day Staunton is sure to be a fun and educational experience for everyone in the family. Make sure to check out our Facbook page and meet a community of environmental advocates right here in Staunton.
