8th Annual Earth Day Celebration April 27, 2019
Join Rock the Green for the 8th Annual (and FREE) Earth Day Celebration Presented by Milwaukee Riverkeeper at Picnic Area 8 in Estabrook Park, Milwaukee. The #EarthDay celebration is a great way to learn about eco-friendly opportunities and support the community in its environmental efforts.
Milwaukee Riverkeeper is proudly hosting their 24th Annual Spring River Cleanup with nearly 4,000 volunteers joining together across the Milwaukee River Basin to pick up trash, get outdoors, and help to achieve swimmable, fishable rivers. Clean up Volunteers and the Community may join the free 8th Annual Rock the Green Earth Day Celebration.
Featuring a live concert by Chicken Wire Empire and Lex Allen on a pedal powered stage, with leg power provided by The Velo Femmes, Black Girls Do Bike and Cadence Cycling Milwaukee. Local food vendors will be selling tasty sustainable fare. On-site eco-education from local environmental non-profits and organizations.
To have a maximum impact of landfill diversion, the event incorporates zero waste production including waste reclamation stations and food served on compostable servingware.
