This year marks the return of Earth Day Savannah to Daffin Park, providing the whole family with an evening of fun and learning on Friday, April 21 (4-8 pm).
This year’s theme, “Our Future is Bright,” is aimed at promoting the clean energy goals of the 100% Savannah Plan — an effort to meet 100% of community electricity needs with renewable energy by 2035.
“Earth Day Savannah is where our whole community can come together to celebrate the beautiful environment of coastal Georgia and learn more about how we can be better neighbors to the planet and each other,” said Sustainability Project Manager Denise Cheeseman for the city of Savannah.
“Whether you’re exploring placing solar panels on your roof or simply looking for a free, family-friendly Friday evening, we look forward to welcoming you to Daffin Park on the 21st,” she said.
WSAV’s Storm Team 3 Chief Meteorologist Kris Allred will be emceeing the event and there will be educational activities and demonstrations throughout the evening, including hands-on exploration at a “sensory garden” with UGA Extension Chatham County.
There will also be live music from local artist Whiskey Dick and The Crazy Bull, along with food trucks located around the park.
The event is free to the public and will be held from 6 pm – 9 pm. Follow Savannah Green Events on social media to learn more about the event or stay up-to-date on their initiatives.
