Earth Month 2016: A Guide to Local Events

Here at My Green Birmingham, April means one thing — a whole lot of wonderful reasons to celebrate our Earth! Thankfully, there’s no shortage of local events and activities that make it easy to pledge your support to local environmental nonprofits, volunteer to enhance our community, or just simply enjoy Birmingham’s natural environment.

From Volunteer Trail Clean Up Days at Red Mountain Park, to the Green Tie Affair, or My Green Birmingham’s Champions of Sustainability event, to Earth Day at The Gardens, our annual Earth Month Guide is your one stop resource for the events you don’t want to miss — all month-long.
