Celebrate the Earth!
Our 13th annual celebration of Earth Day & Arbor Day will be held on Sat. May 13th on the Dracut Historical Society grounds. This a free, fun, & educational event for the Dracut community. We'll have exhibits, demonstrations, hands-on activities & crafts, & lots of fun! Each year we giveaway tree saplings & compost + an item such as a reusable bag, mug, or in this year's case, wildflower seed paper shaped like the Earth.
Our goal is to raise awareness of environmental concerns, the importance of protecting & treasuring trees, nature, & wildlife, as well as ways to reduce one's impact on the environment such as recycling, composting, and reusing items in new ways. We plant a tree for residents to enjoy in a public space such as Veterans' Park, and we also help coordinate a Community Cleanup Week along with the DPW. Our event grows and gets better each year thanks to our community.
