Southside Park, Sacramento

Living Green is Second Nature

Each year, the Environmental Council of Sacramento (ECOS) coordinates Sacramento Earth Day. Over 150 organizations and businesses exhibit a vast array of practical information, goods and services that cultivate a healthier and more sustainable way of living. We also host a variety of live music, entertainers, healthy cuisine and fun activities for all, including a children’s area. Admission is free and we anticipate more than 4,000 attendees. One of ECOS’ primary goals is to educate community members on the need to reduce the footprint of our daily lives and preserve the planet for future generations. Sacramento Earth Day is an important tool for working toward this goal.
