All Day Two Day Festival
APRIL 21-22

FAIR PARK
FREE ADMISSION


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:

The meeting's agenda: approval of temporary by-laws for DCGP, the formation of a by-laws committee and report of the U.S. Green Party's national convention held this past weekend.

Texas tree advocates will host a storytime at the Texas Capitol to read Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax under some of the building’s historic oak trees. Following the storytime, which we anticipate will feature lawmakers and special guests reading the book, families and advocates will deliver copies of The Lorax to key Texas legislators to urge them against stripping local governments of their tree preservation rules.

A musical tale of five children's journey to the center of the earth, where they encounter ordinary people on extraordinary quests to save the planet. $15-$50.

Iit was determined by consensus to reach out to a particular area of the county to investigate opportunities for service and, potentially, to make a larger impact on the political front. The Northside of Fort Worth was chosen as the spot.

Lupita, Eva's manager, has planned to set aside enough space for us to have our meeting, so an RSVP would be helpful. It is a small taqueria, so seating space is limited.
