About Earth Day Staunton
For over 40 years, Earth Day has been celebrated around the world to foster enthusiasm for conservation and remind us that we are all responsible for our Planet's health.
Earth Day Staunton began in 2007 with a group of exhibits about wildlife, nature, and environment, while also focusing on the Lewis Creek Watershed issues. In 2011, we expanded 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 a live bee hive, bird box demonstration, pesticide safety, 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.
