Earth Day Fun Facts

Earth Day Fun Facts - The Tuttle Group

Earth Day is Saturday, April 22. Are you looking for an enjoyable way to make the day special? Dallas offers some outstanding opportunities. Earth Day Fun Facts - The Tuttle Group

  • EarthDayTX, taking place April 21-23 in Fair Park, bills itself as the world’s largest Earth Day event. Exhibits, activities, and vendors will focus on environmental progress, hope, and innovation. This year’s event will launch EARTHxFilm, showcasing films and emerging media that look at conservation, climate change, and the environment. The fairgrounds open at 10 a.m. and admission is free.
  • Immerse yourself in the outdoors in a city park. With 381 parks encompassing 23,242 acres and more than 125 miles of walking and bike trails, Dallas has one of the largest municipal park systems in the U.S. Parks range from downtown green spaces to sports facilities to White Rock Lake Park, home of the Dallas Arboretum. Not only is there a park near you, but there probably is at least one you haven’t visited yet. Visit dallasparks.org/35/parks-trails to learn more.
  • Already know and love your local park? Help keep it beautiful! Join “It’s My Park Day” from 9 a.m. to noon April 22. Volunteer jobs may include litter clean-up, planting, and mulching. Chasing down litter may not sound like fun, but it can be when you do it with friends! And when you’re done, you’ll see the difference your work has made. Visit the Dallas Parks website or call (214) 670-1923 to register.
  • Seeing wild animals on a flat screen is nothing like seeing them in person. If you haven’t been to the Dallas Zoo lately, this is a great day to do it. The zoo has more than 2,200 animals, including many that are threatened in the wild. Meet them and be inspired to help save them. Reduce your carbon footprint (and save yourself the parking fee) by taking the DART Red Line to the Dallas Zoo station.
  • Plant a tree on Earth Day or make plans to plant one. Trees clean the air, give us oxygen, and save energy by cooling our neighborhoods with their shade. Visit your local nursery for suggestions on the right tree for your site. Not a homeowner? Get together with friends and see if a tree would be welcome at your church, school, workplace, or park. The benefits will last for years to come.
