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:

Every day in the United States each person throws away almost five pounds of garbage. Where does it all go? Find out about municipal waste programs, the local landfill, the work that goes into disposing our waste and why it is important to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Free.

If you're passionate about composting and enjoy sharing your knowledge with others, then become a State of Texas Master Composter. Learn how to improve your soil's health by diverting valuable garden resources from the landfill back into your landscape. The 16-hour, 4-class series is a unique opportunity to gain a more in-depth understanding of the composting process and insights on sharing this knowledge with others.
