Goals of the EC Earth Day Celebration:

1.) Celebrate! Earth Day could, and should, be recognized a bona fide holiday, and we intend to bring the community together to celebrate the planet, its gifts, its wonders, and our efforts to sustain it. The event should appeal to all ages and demographics.

2.) Inform! Exhibits, activities, and entertainment, at least in some respects, will be designed to inform the greater community about various environmental issues, and promote environmentally friendly practices and lifestyles.

3.) Promote! Showcase local businesses and organizations that are committed to environmentally responsible practices, and provide a platform by which various issue-related groups can connect with the general public and deliver their message.
