Celebrate Earth Day with the City of Sunset Hills

Saturday, April 16 come for FREE FAMILY FUN! Join in on celebrating the beauty of nature at a family fun event for all ages! The celebration kicks off at 9:30 am on Saturday April 16, 2015 and will be held at the Sunset Hills Community Center, 3915 South Lindbergh.

As in prior years, the Earth Day Celebration will feature children’s activities with a clown, a balloon creator, a face painter and bounce house; and various vendors on hand to answer questions and educate.

A highlight of the annual Earth Day Celebration is Recycling! Donate cans, clothing, shoes, electronics, glasses and paint to be recycled! Paper shredding will also be available from 9:30am to 1pm (five boxes per family.)

St. Justin Martyr students will display their creative works. Children from Kindergarten and up will have 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 an earth-friendly product; go on a family hike, reduce, reuse and re-cycle.

Upcoming events offered by the Sunset Hills Parks & Recreation Department include:

  • Ballet classes start April 2.
  • City Wide Garage Sale on Saturday, April 30 starting at 8am.
