Earth Day Dallas features two days of engaging exhibits, compelling speakers, music, entertainment, food and fun for everyone. Join us April 21-22, 2012 in Fair Park to see how you can make a difference.
Mission:  Learn. Grow.

Celebrate Earth Day at this fun festival with exhibits, speakers, films, music, food & more focused on making a positive impact on our environment.

The heart of the festival is the Eco Expo, and exhibitors will use their presence to promote their achievements as green leaders, and teach attendees how to take environmentally responsible action by better utilizing available resources, switching to eco-friendly products, or joining their organizations.

In addition to the Eco Expo, attendees will have a number of educational entertainment options, which will include:

Discover the incredible story of the woodpecker.  From shaping entire ecosystems with the tip of their bill to a call like no other, these birds are more than meets the eye. Find out the threats they face and how you can help ensure their survival. From drumming to snake fights, don’t miss your chance to learn fascinating facts about this quirky family as we explore the wild world of woodpeckers. Presented by Jenna Hanson and Ben Jones of the Dallas Zoo Wild Earth Academy. Refreshments @6:30 p.m. All welcome.
