The City of El Paso will be celebrating Earth Day during the whole month of April with different activities and events across the Sun City.

Earth Day is officially April 22, but the Office of Resilience and Sustainability extends that celebration throughout the entire month of April by activating community partnerships, offering public engagement opportunities and conducting educational workshops.

Several Earth Day related events and activities will be hosted by the Environmental Services Department (ESD), El Paso Zoo, the Museums and Cultural Affairs Department (MCAD) and the El Paso Public Library during the month of April. A dedicated website coming out by the end of the month will offer details on all Earth Day related activities throughout April, including tips on how to stay green and raising awareness about environmental issues.

The City of El Paso will kick off “April is Earth Month” at 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 24 at the El Paso Zoo featuring ESD’s Captain Green and Super Spud the Shelter Dog, the El Paso Library mascot, along with produce displays by the Downtown Arts & Farmers Market.
