Earth Day Tampa Bay takes pride at USF Botanical Gardens

TAMPA, Fla. -- Join USF’s Office of Sustainability and the Tampa Bay Sierra Club for Earth Day Tampa Bay 2011, on Saturday, April 23 at the USF Botanical Gardens. This year makes the 41st celebration of Earth Day Tampa Bay, and the theme, Pride of Place, encourages taking pride in our communities and environment. The free event starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m.

Parking is free for those who wish to drive, and if a bike ride sounds good, USF has more than four miles of bike lanes on campus. USF’s Bull Runner is free to students, faculty and staff as well.

The day will include various activities, arts, crafts, music and food. Exhibitors will include Sweetwater Community Farm, Big Cat Rescue, Ethics of Food Production, and many more. There will be business demonstrations to introduce new green products as well as nonprofit organizations to provide information to those who attend.

Children’s activities also will be part of the celebration, so be sure to bring the kids so they, too, can learn how to be green and live a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
