Coral Springs, FL – On Saturday, April 24, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., the city will celebrate Earth Day by hosting a reimagined EarthFest Plant Distribution event. Taking place at the Sportsplex (Tom Messenheimer Field - 2575 Sportsplex Drive), the free event will offer a unique opportunity to enjoy and celebrate nature. This year’s EarthFest event will feature nature exhibits, community garden information and plant giveaways for Coral Springs residents only.

Additionally, starting at 9 a.m., the city will host a Keep Coral Springs Beautiful Clean-Up throughout the city. Those who are interested in volunteering must be 14 years old or older. Volunteer hours are eligible for service hours credibility. To volunteer, register online by visiting www.coralsprings.org/volunteer. Once registered, volunteers will receive via email their assigned location.

Regarding the city’s reimagined EarthFest and Keep Coral Springs Beautiful Clean Up Day, Commissioner Nancy Metayer said, “Although this year’s events will look different than ones held in the past, our city is fortunate to continue its Earth-friendly celebration, while engaging youth to help clean-up their own city streets. As an environmentalist and Commissioner for Coral Springs, respecting and protecting our planet is one of my greatest priorities.” 

Due to COVID-19, all participants and attendees at both events will be required to wear facial coverings.
