Earth Day is everyday, but it's also April 17th…

Come out and visit WB Surf Camp at the 2010 Wilmington Earth Day Festival at Hugh MacRae Park. The event is FREE and will be happening from noon till 6pm on Sat, April 17th.

Over 50 environmental exhibits will be on display representing various organizations and businesses. Tidal Creek Co-op, Mellow Mushroom, and various beer distributors will offer delicious food and beer. There will be a variety of music from great live bands includes SteadFast, End of the Line, and The Casserole.

There will be exciting activities for any member of the family (Sorry no pets allowed!). The popular Kid’s Eco Zone will provide hands-on activities for kids of all ages. Check out local environmental programs, enter to win a kayak, or go shopping in the Green Market, plus much more!

The event has become so popular that there will be off-site parking. Park your vehicle in the old Cinema 6 movie theatre parking lot on Oleander Drive (near Tidal-Creek Co-op), and take a trolley from there to the park for FREE!!! The trolley will run every 20 minutes from 12:00-6:00.

This year’s theme is Earth Day 2010 – REDUCE. It is the 40th Anniversary of the very first Earth Day, so Wilmington is taking it back to the basics which are: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The city decided to go with REDUCE for their theme, because if you can reduce from the beginning, then you’ll have less to deal with in the end (recycle). They also will be bringing specific attention to the reduction of trash, mainly plastic, and how it is collecting in gyres that exist in each of the Earth’s oceans.
