Alexandria Earth Day 2024
Let’s Celebrate our Earth! Join the City of Alexandria in celebrating Earth Day 2024 throughout the month of April.
Join us as we commemorate the 54th anniversary of Earth Day with a month full of environmentally focused events, activities, and online initiatives that center on the Eco-City Vision in which Alexandria’s residents, businesses, and City government participate in a vibrant community that is always mindful of the needs and lifestyle of the generations to come. We all need to do our part and what better way than through fun, educational, and engaging opportunities.
