City of Sunset Hills Celebrates Earth Day April 18

In Partnership with GO (Green Objectives)

On Saturday April 18, just before Earth Day, The City of Sunset Hills is honoring our environment in partnership with GO (Green Objectives).

FREE FAMILY FUN! Join in on celebrating the beauty of nature at a family fun event for all ages! The Celebration kicks off at 10:00 am on Saturday April 18, 2015 and will be held at the Sunset Hills Community Center, 3915 South Lindbergh. NEW THIS YEAR! The city has partnered with Trailnet and Sunset Cyclery, to bring our first bicycle rodeo which will be held on the front campus parking lot by the community center. All ages are welcome. By introducing bicycling with youth and adults, you’re promoting a great way to get exercise and quality family time! Bring or ride your bike to enjoy this event!

As in prior years, the Celebration will feature:

  • Children’s activities, with a clown, a balloon creator, a face painter and bounce house
  • Green vendor fair with a variety of educational materials and products
  • Tree seedling giveaway
  • Sunset Hills Garden Club and South County Tech Greenhouse will have an offering of plants and advice
  • Free hotdogs while supplies last.

A highlight of the annual Earth Day Celebration is Recycling! Donate cans, clothing, shoes, electronics, glasses and paint to be recycled! This year free paper shredding will also be available from 10am to 1pm (five boxes per family); Lindbergh Elementary Students return again this year to display their creative works. Children from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade will have over 130 pieces of art displayed in the Sunset Hills Community Center during the day of the event. Stop by and be inspired by the talents of these young artists and their interpretation of celebrating Earth Day!

Earth Day is a day that you can give back with a simple act. The Sunset Hills Parks and Recreation encourages you to celebrate in your own way. Here are some suggestions: plant a tree; use nature to make a craft; pick up some trash; clean a river; use earth-friendly products; go on a family hike, reduce, reuse and recycle.

  • Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 5th at 1:00pm
  • City Wide Garage Sale on Saturday, April 25 starting at 8am
