The We Love Earth Festival is a free event where we’ll celebrate our beautiful planet while learning about a host of actions we can collectively take to address the climate crisis.

You’ll be able to learn more about everything from how to create a climate-friendly home to sustainable eating, active and electric transportation, as well as local and state climate advocacy. Exhibitors and presenters for the We Love Earth Festival are experts in their field and will be available to answer any questions you’ve had but didn’t know where to turn for answers! 

And since this is a festival, you know we’ll have entertainment! You can look forward to art projects and a variety of live animal encounters.
