A free Earth Day Celebration will take place on Saturday, April 26 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Pleasant Grove Pole Barns. This family-friendly event is all about helping Fluvanna clean up and learn new, environmentally-friendly ways of doing things, according to Jonathan Pace, recreation program specialist for the Fluvanna County Department of Parks and Recreation, which is co-hosting this event.
“This is an informative celebration to spread awareness and get people in the know about what they can do to help Fluvanna be ‘green’,” Pace said. “We want to build a good foundation this year, and then make this an annual event, so that Fluvanna residents know – every year around Earth Day, they can dispose of their hazardous waste, tires, and medications, and learn more about how they can help the environment.”
