The City of Sarasota and UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County will host an Earth Day Festival on Monday, April 22, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Selby Five Points Park in downtown Sarasota.

The event will feature information booths throughout the park on a variety of environmental issues, including energy efficiency, stormwater pollution, composting, native plants, electric vehicles and more. Food will be available for purchase from the Spice Boys food truck.

Visitors will have a chance to tour two tiny homes, pick up free bicycle gear, try an e-scooter, learn about plastic pollution and how to turn single-use plastics into reusable items, hear more about Sarasota in Motion, the city’s transportation master plan, and learn why putting fats, oils and greases down the kitchen drain is so bad

In recognition of Arbor Day and the City of Sarasota’s celebration of 33 years of being designated as a “Tree City USA” by the Arbor Day Foundation, some attendees will also be able to take home free native plants and trees available at the festival.

For more information, contact the City’s Sustainability office at 941-926-6686 or sustainability@sarasotafl.gov.
