USF holds Earth Day celebration to bring attention to ‘Pride of Place’

In celebration of  Earth Day,  USF’s  Office of Sustainability and the Tampa Bay Sierra Club will hold an event at USF’s Botanical Gardens on Saturday to promote the community’s efforts to “go green.”

“I think that this event will be a great way to bring attention to the importance of putting our earth first,” USF student Parris Bell said. “I am dragging all of my friends out to show them all the ways you can show pride for your community’s environment.”

The theme of this years event is “Pride of Place” and is meant to bring attention to the pride the Tampa Bay area has for its local environments. The event will host over 100 environmentally conscious exhibitors including organizations such as the Student Community Garden Club, the Peace Corps and Big Cat Rescue. There will also be demonstrations, eco-friendly arts and crafts, community groups, live music, food, and children’s activities.

According to a press release on the event’s site the event is  family friendly, and organizers encourage people to use eco-friendly transportation to get to the event.
