Earth Day Events in Baltimore

This Sunday(April 22nd) is Earth Day, but Green festivities are going on all weekend long.  What better way to celebrate Earth Day than by checking out one of these events.  Make sure to walk, jog, bike, or take public transit this weekend!

  • Baltimore Eco-Fest - The 9th Annual festival of all things green kicks off on Saturday from noon to 5PM.  The sapling I got a few years ago (for free) from this event now towers over me...and it looks great.  Click here for more info.
  • Localize it II -  On Sunday, The Baltimore Free Farm teams up with Baltimore Green Currency and BaltiBrew to put on a chili cook off, home brew competition and street festival.  Click here for more info.
  • Earth Day at the MD Science Center - On Saturday, bring the kids to the science center for workshops, exhibits, and even a tour of the rooftop deck (just imagine the views).  Take a sapling home with you to plant also! Click here for more info.
  • Floating wetlands in the harbor - you may have noticed a few floating wetlands in the harbor last year.  This year the living classrooms steps it up with over 10 times the amount of floating wetlands.  If you're at the harbor on Saturday morning, check them out as they're moved into position around the World Trade Center building.
