Join us for an exciting event. The 2012 Earth Day Tampa Bay is being organized by the Tampa Bay Sierra Club and the University of South Florida's Office of Sustainability. The theme this year, "go native," is intended to promote the use of native plants in the urban landscape. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 28 at the USF Botanical Gardens (one block north of the corner of Fowler Avenue & Bruce B. Downs Boulevard). Admission and parking are FREE.

The year 2012 will mark the 42nd Earth Day Tampa Bay celebration. This year's festival will feature exhibitors, demonstrations, arts and crafts, community groups, live music, food, and children's activities—all aimed to help Tampa Bay's residents create a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Businesses will demonstrate new products that will focus on ways to "go green," and nonprofit organizations will be on site to provide helpful information. This annual event typically attracts several thousands of participants.

Visit displays by the Water and Solid Waste departments for free water efficiency and recycling information and materials. The first 800 people to visit our booth can receive a free garden hose nozzle.

Event rescheduled from April 21, due to inclement weather.
