Durham Earth Day Festival

While the Durham Earth Day Festival has been canceled we will still observe Earth Day digitally!

Durham Earth Day April 17-22

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated around the world on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, it now includes events coordinated globally through the Earth Day Network in more than 193 countries. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Durham Parks and Recreation will observe Earth Day digitally. Visit us daily, April 17-22 on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to learn what you can do to live more sustainably. You can also check out our blog for additional information. 

Knowing Earth Day facts and history can help us better understand what we can do to make our world more habitable.
