Celebrate Earth Day At EV Event Or On A Trail Near You

Saturday is Earth Day and if you live in or around Polk County, you have some choices for observing it.

Ancient Islands Group’s Clean Energy Committee will be participating in an electric vehicle show-and-tell at Munn Park in downtown Lakeland. From 9 a.m.to 1 p.m.

A number of electronic vehicles will be on display and their owners or dealer representatives will be available to answer questions about these vehicles . Electric vehicles, which generate no tailpipe emissions, are seen as the ultimate solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions responsible for climate change.

Saturday is also National Trails Day. There are no local special events to celebrate the event organized by the Rails to Trails Conservancy, but it is an opportunity to walk or ride a bicycle along one the many recreational and nature trails in the area.

This is an activity you can do anytime because it is worthwhile to celebrate Earth Day every day.
