Earth Day at the Gardens
22nd Annual Earth Day at the Gardens
Saturday, April 20, 2019 | 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Birmingham Botanical Gardens—Blount Plaza & Gerlach Plant Information Center
Free and Open to the Public
From marigolds and dia de los muertos to picking the right flower and color to express exactly how you feel about a loved one. Join the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens as we encourage a love for plants, gardens, and the environment to blossom by celebrating flowers and our cultural ties to them at our 22nd annual Earth Day celebration. The free, family-friendly event will promote healthy communities, sustainable living, and human wellness through educational dialogue, informational displays, and outdoor activities.
Exhibitors representing organizations advocating for strengthened community bonds, environmental awareness, community education, improved waste management, and the physical and psychological benefits of our natural environment. Representatives of ZEOG (Zero Emissions Owners Group) of Birmingham and the Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition will present displays of electric vehicles, solar panels, and zero-emission lawn tools and be available to answer your questions.
