TAMPA – The City of Tampa announces an invitation for all to come out to 2012 Earth Day Tampa Bay, Saturday April 28 at USF.
Get ready for an exciting event. The 2012 Earth Day Tampa Bay is being organized by the Tampa Bay Sierra Club and the University of South Florida’s Office of Sustainability. The theme this year, “go native,” is intended to promote the use of native plants in the urban landscape.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 28 at the USF Botanical Gardens (one block north of the corner of Fowler Avenue & Bruce B. Downs Boulevard). Admission and parking are FREE.
The year 2012 will mark the 42nd Earth Day Tampa Bay celebration. This year’s festival will feature exhibitors, demonstrations, arts and crafts, community groups, live music, food, and children’s activities—all aimed to help Tampa Bay’s residents create a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Businesses will demonstrate new products that will focus on ways to “go green,” and nonprofit organizations will be on site to provide helpful information.
This annual event typically attracts several thousands of participants.
