Since April 22, 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated each year all over the world. At the time, air and water quality were threatened, our species and personal health were threatened and a call of public actions towards protection led to such things as the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and other legislation that has brought positive change to our world.
Admission to Earth Fest 2013 is FREE and it offers something for everyone, including pets! Bring your family and friends and walk, bike or drive your hybrid to the best environmentally safe, eco-friendly events in Seminole County.
