    “We are delighted to return this year with our annual earth day event. This event was previously canceled last year in light of shifting parameters with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We are beyond thrilled to be back for 2022. This event has so much to offer for our residents and families,” said Keri Marrs Barron, Executive Director of the Recycling & Waste Reduction District of Porter County.  
    Annually Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd across the nation. This date marks the birth of the modern environmental movement in the United States. Locally the fight for a clean environment continues with increasing urgency, as the ravages of climate change become more and more apparent each and every day. 
    “Every year Earth Day serves as great opportunity for new learning and teachable moments for individuals of all ages. It’s the one day across the entire calendar year where we as human beings come together to recognize Mother Earth in all her majesty. Come celebrate with us and join in on the action! We can’t wait to see you,” said Erika Mihalek Public Relations Coordinator for the Recycling & Waste Reduction District of Porter County.
